| This research investigates the potential of glass as a new design tool to highlight and safeguard our historic structures.
| 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.
| Glass surfaces can be pre-treated so that they do not offer bacteria and viruses a chance to survive and do not aggregate layers of dirt.
| 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.
| Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) experiments were carried out on three different Saflex® interlayers from commercial production, all at a nominal thickness of 0.76 mm.
| 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.
| In today’s architecture the bending of glass plays an important role in achieving free forms in modern façades.
| Sustainability and the circular economy are increasingly influencing work and production processes in glass manufacturing, too.
| What is your vision of the future? What role will glass play in your vision?
| 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.
| 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 paper was first presented at GPD 2019 by Louis Moreau from AGNORA, Canada.
| In this article, the prestressing profile of chemically prestressed glass panes is investigated and two different measurement methods for recording surface compressive stress will be presented.
| ​​​​​​​In the 1950s the flat glass industry had two separate products and sub-industries: plate glass and sheet glass. Float glass merged these two industries.
| In a flat glass laminating oven, glass-film sandwiches are located on rotating rollers and conveyed through a heating chamber in a continuous flow.
| The Correct Adaptation of IR Thermometers and Cameras to Different Applications
| In the last years contentions about anisotropies among customers and manufacturers occurred when using glass products, such as heat-strengthened (HS) or fully tempered glass (FT).
| New Technical Document (TD) reviews glass surface decontamination—and what makes glass ideal for physical separation and other applications.
| The use of laminated safety glass instead of single glass sheets is especially important in order to mitigate the risks of potential post-breakage behaviour and thus for the fixation of glass fragments in case of damage to the glass.
| A couple of years ago all started with the first measurement of anisotropies and edge stress as well as the detection of White Haze and other glass imperfections right after the furnace.
| The author proposes a simple surface quality test using a standard window cleaning scraper and common smartphone or shop microscope.
| This blog post was written based on an interview with M.Sc. (Chem.) Santtu Jolkkonen, Sparklike's Service and Maintenance Manager, who has been working as technical support specialist for Sparklike over a decade.
| In some cases, the blemished glass can be restored to an acceptable aesthetic condition using a combination of wet and dry polishing methods.
| Multiple glass options offer customized ways to suit different building needs.
