| This first episode is devoted to the white haze phenomenon – one of the most asked about issues in the history of #AskGlaston.
| In the present paper, optical anisotropy effects in architectural glass are evaluated using digital image processing.
| This paper focuses on a recently developed concept, in which glass is combined with timber to provide post-breakage strength and ductility.
| The use of new generation thin, lightweight and damage-resistant glass, originally conceived for electronic displays, is moving its first steps in the built environment, in particular for adaptive and movable skins and façades.
| After seaming, grinding glass edges is another important work step in glass edge processing. The process is primarily used to remove overbreaks and underbreaks at the edges and to process the glass sheets to size.
| This paper explores the flexural strength of recycled cast glass—a property relevant to the engineering practice.
| Anisotropy is the term used in the façade industry to describe the manifestation of patterns and colourful areas in heat-treated glass under certain light and viewing conditions.
| 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.
| 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.
