| Irregularities in the glass, which are visible under certain lighting conditions and interfere with the overall impression of a pane – anisotropies – occur when glass is tempered.
| A clean, safe and sustainable source of energy, solar continues to power the world at a faster pace than ever before.
| In this work, a combined Voronoi and finite-discrete element method (FDEM) approach for reconstructing the post-fracture model of laminated glass (LG) was proposed.
| 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.
| 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 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.
| Glaston is working hard to make tempering furnaces more automated.

| In several standards such as EN 1288 test scenarios for the determination of strength of glass is described.
| The fragment count in the standardized fragmentation test in the standard EN 12150-1 is the way to define the safety level of tempered glass and a way to also get an indication about the stress and strength level of the tempered glass.
