| 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 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 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.
| This paper was first presented at GPD 2019 by Louis Moreau from AGNORA, Canada.
| In a glass tempering process, residual stresses to glass are made with heat treatment. The process includes heating and cooling, and they should be equal on both sides of the glass pane.
| Following a short overview outlining key design objectives, the fabrication process of an opaque composite glass panel is described in detail.
| 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).
| Glass distortions may cause objects to appear irregular and out of focus when observed through a distorted glass panel.
| Modern architecture continues to produce ever more attractive and higher quality façade constructions.
| 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.
| Arup are consulting engineers for a series of recent projects involving curved glass: The High Roller observation wheel in Las Vegas and a revolving feature lift for the new Louis Vuitton townhouse in London.
| 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.
| “Fire-protection” vs. “fire-resistive.” How should a building code official understand these often confused terms when considering fire-rated glass?
| Full glass structures can appear to be practically invisible and the observer experiences the wonderful sensation of seeing a floating, weightless and totally transparent structure, as if it‘s almost not there.
| Furnaces are currently inspected on a regular basis with thermal imaging sensors and other techniques that heavily rely on experience of the plant personnel.
| An innovative synthesis of UV-cured digital print and industrial surface coatings transforms façades into modern art
| Glass industry standards in different countries require 24/7 quality control with the same specifications and fully automated analyses and following statistics.
| The new headquarters of one of the Worlds largest fashion groups features a glass curtain wall that combines the established benefits of DuPont SentryGlas interlayer with the new architectural fabric, SEFAR Architecture Vision, for a stunning visual effect.
| Process control is a key factor for speed and efficiency of IS machines. To run a machine at high performance levels it is essential to achieve and maintain stable production conditions.
| The current manufacturing of tempered glass is a complex as well as time- and cost-intensive process. Not only long processing times, but also high energy costs have a significant impact.
| Glass is a versatile material. Especially large area applications such as facade solutions impart their own visual effect and therefore require a targeted selection of the appropriate product.
