| 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.
