| 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!
| 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 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.
| This paper gives an overview of experimental research performed on glazing subjected to fire loading.
| The load-bearing capacity of glass as a structural material as well as sustainability and resistance of a built-in glass against appearing loads and forces is assuming an ever-greater importance.
| This study forms part of a wider research programme that aims to better address the end-of-life challenges and opportunities in façade design for re-use.
| This paper presents the experimental results of a three-point bending test conducted on laminated glass at elevated temperature in an environmental chamber.
| The study describes the results of the principal applicability of fiber optic strain sensors to evaluate the structural behaviour of laminated glass and provides the basis to define a model for the material characteristics of viscoelastic interlayers.
| The determination of interlayer modulus data is complex.
| 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.
| The main goal of all fire-rated glass is to compartmentalize fire to enable safe exit. It is most commonly used around egress areas, property line walls, stairwells, and points of exit.
| The development of structural details in glass connections is the main topic of this research.
| The Surface Compression Stress (SC) data, collected by Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro, were analysed to compare the measurements carried out by Scalp-05 (Scattered Light Polariscope) and Laser Gasp (Strainoptics’ GASP® Polarimeter).
| This presentation offers a new perspective on limit device design and specifications especially due to construction phase and post-occupancy habits in urban environments.
| This paper deals with the development and construction of a novel 2,308 sqm glass tube façade engineered by Eckersley O’Callaghan (EOC) as façade consultant and turned into reality by seele.
| The cold bending of glass in unique facades have been successfully completed in the past using structural silicone glazing (SSG) as the sole method of retention of the bending membrane.
| The performance of the glazed sections of the facade is essential for providing the maximum possible comfort for the building occupants, while minimizing the energy and resource demands of the building.
| Recently, the uniform load resistance of enamel coated glass plates has become a topic of interest with respect to proposed changes to ASTM E1300.
| A new design of structural glass application is presented, based on a horizontal self-bearing and pre-stressed glass solution.
| Insulating glass has been used around the world in applications ranging from family homes to high-scale construction.
| This document refers to a small explanation of the Auditorium execution process from the design and development of the technical solution, testing, manufacturing, to its final execution.
