| This paper studies the influence of the size of window glasses on their failure characteristics.
| Photovoltaic (PV) windows can enable net-zero highly glazed buildings
| This study presents an experimental investigation of a window unit and focuses specifically on the conductance between the structural elements and the frame system of a conventional house in the city of Xanthi, northern Greece.
| Explosion events represent an extraordinary action for buildings and especially for the building envelope.
| This paper examines the visual performance of building facades that utilize windows with different photochromic-coated glass.
| This paper aims to contribute to this topic by examining the potential of a smart window system that has double dynamic insulated glazing in preventing heat gain and maximising daylight indoors.
| This work presents the results of the evaluation of two Art Nouveau glass windows from the Casa-Museu Dr. Anastácio Gonçalves (Lisbon, Portugal) with IR-thermography during the summer solstice.
| In the article, the focus is on an overview of several norms, standards, and research that address the issue of resilience of window systems.
| Abatement of the high building energy is possible by employing semitransparent photovoltaic window which has triple point advantages as they control the admitted solar gain and daylight and generates benign electricity.
| This paper presents some of major outcomes of Finite Element (FE) numerical methods and simulations that have been explored in the framework of the GLASS-SHARD research project for glass windows and facades under explosion or soft-body impact.
| Introducing BIPV and WIPV solar window systems
| This paper gives an overview of the requirements of a ship structure, and more specifically yacht structures, and describes the challenges associated with using glass as a fully integrated structural component.
| There are parts of the window inside the glass that play a crucial role in its performance.
| Elegant glazing - from walls to slabs - clads a residential tower.
| This presentation offers a new perspective on limit device design and specifications especially due to construction phase and post-occupancy habits in urban environments.
| Vacuum Insulated Glazing (VIG) concept allows for a significant improvement of thermal insulation compared with the incumbent double-pane windows design.
| Numerous innovations have been seen in the last decades concerning new façade technologies. These were driven by new materials or new applications of known materials, such as glued-on wall structures (structural glazing) in the 60’s and 70’s.
| Windows have always been at the intersection of various technologies and architectural processes that evolved in parallel and often intertwined.
| Condensation is regarded as a problem associated with old and new windows. Commonly seen on the inside pane of glazing, new high performance sealed units and windows have resulted in condensation sometimes forming on the outside pane.
| There are an increasing amount of products available that offer varying degrees of natural daylight and most will be familiar with smaller scale skylights, rooflights or roof windows.
