| Do you still spend precious time doing the meticulous task of manually counting glass cullets for a glass fragmentation test? Or maybe your modern counting tool is not exactly the gold standard? If so, we have some good news for you!
| Constructions at exceptional locations are often challenging but worth one’s while. Extreme boundary conditions and sophisticated demands of the client have to be considered.
| Building code requirements for wind-borne debris protection have been in existence since the mid- 1990s, and as a result, many glazing systems have been tested and certified to these performance requirements.
| Post breakage strength of glass is still an unknown area as analytical models for this are inconclusive so far and thus destructive testing is the only reliable solution.
| The Swiss society of engineers and architects (SIA) initiated a structural glass standard committee with the task to develop a Swiss glass design standard.
| The present work uses non-linear material laws for FEA and exhibits the behavior of the sealant joint in various load scenarios on several projects.
| The present paper presents an ongoing research project considering the failure of glass at high strain-rates. It provides a brief review of existing studies showing a strength increase with loading rates relevant for e.g. blast loads.
| In today’s architecture the bending of glass plays an important role in achieving free forms in modern façades.
| The aim of this paper is to identify and discuss challenges with the assumption that the SSG is isolated from the glass self-weight and provide a better understanding on the complexity of SSG systems.
| The simulation tool provides an accurate definition of the internal pressure, deflection and stress on glass panels and forces through the sealant silicone with a reduced pre-post and calculation time, being ideal for parametric studies.
| Here, comparisons are made with numerical analyses, performed by implementing an ad hoc routine in the software Straus7, developed by Maffeis Engineering.
| The structural glass for this globe structure is created with laminated double curved glass panels patch supported by a steel structure.
| The post-breakage behavior of glass beams is not easy to predict, therefore Octatube performed a range of tests on different glass fins varying the test setup.
| The paper presents an overview of the work completed within the on-going research project “Structural safety of glass components” carried out at the Silesian University of Technology, Lund University and RISE Research Institutes of Sweden.
| This paper focusses on the special glass part of the façade.
| It is a very known behavior that the glass fragmentation depends on where you break the glass.
| Traditional uses of glass have been reinvented by two architectural firms, who artfully use glass and interlayers to achieve very different design goals.
| For over four thousand years, the lustrous, hard, and inert characteristics of glass have made it one of the world’s most desirable and frequently used building materials.
| A comprehensive numerical investigation was carried out to understand the mechanical behavior of cold-bent insulating glass units during the bending process. The aim is to derive a basic understanding of the mechanical behavior of an IGU during the cold bending process.
| Since A.Zoller has proposed the idea of vacuum glass in 1913, vacuum glass technology become more and more mature from the last 100 years.
| The present paper, correlated with the Author’s speech at GPD 2019 but extending it at the same time, summarizes some of the R&D work recently published by Saint-Gobain.
