| The brittle material behaviour of glass means that fixing glass panels together and/or connecting them onto supporting structures is challenging in building construction industry.
| Glass units are in demand in structural applications, however, the strength is challenging to predict.
| In the structural design of facade glazing, various types of loads such as dead weight, wind and climatic loads must be taken into account. In practice, however, there are many cases of damage that can be attributed to direct solar radiation.
| This study provides a closer look at fire performance of glass beams and proposes further examinations to increase the load-bearing capacity in case of fire.
| In the second episode of #AskGlaston Flat Tempering Series, we will talk about the new solution to estimate the stress level in glass – online.
| In this paper, artificial intelligence (AI) will be applied for the first time in the context of glass processing.
| 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.
| The structural glass for this globe structure is created with laminated double curved glass panels patch supported by a steel structure.
| 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.
| This paper focusses on the special glass part of the façade.
| 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.
| Curtain wall design commonly uses insulating glass units for spandrel glazing to provide better visual harmony between vision and spandrel areas.
| Vacuum Insulated Glazing (VIG) is a highly thermally insulating transparent flat panel that is constructed from two glass panes, separated by an evacuated sub-millimeter gap, and hermetically sealed around its perimeter.
| Glass type, coating types and locations, shading patterns and devices... there are multiple factors that can contribute to a thermal stress break.
| In this paper local heat transfer of impinging small jets on surface heat transfer and residual stresses is studied.
| In several standards such as EN 1288 test scenarios for the determination of strength of glass is described.
| The Vacuum Insulated Glazing (VIG) is a unique thermally insulating window technology that can provide significant advantages over the conventional insulating units.
| It is well known that laminated safety glass (LSG) is a material that is specifically processed because of its composition.
| 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.
| Minor edge damage during glass handling, a scratch or nick during installation, a design flaw, or a natural imperfection in the glass could all result in spontaneous breakage.
