| The objective of this study is to understand the response of laminated glass under high-rate bending in the laboratory at rates representative of blast loading.
| Correction of factor kₑ in EN1288-3
| This paper investigates the influence of Possion´s Effect on the accuracy and applicability of the used linear elastic Euler-Bernoulli beam theory for the determination of the tensile bending strength of thin glass.
| The research paper gives an idea and compares the structural behaviour and fracture pattern and evaluates laminated glass samples with PVB, Ionoplast and EVA interlayers.
| In the latest Glastory blog, Jukka Immonen shares some practical tips for optimizing energy consumption in automotive glass production. From preprocessing to final inspection, there is huge potential every step of the way.
| An experimental investigation of the post-fracture bending moment capacity based on time-temperature mapping of interlayer yield stress
| The trend in modern architecture towards a steady optimisation of building envelopes is continuing. Beside its function as a design element, a façade also contributes to the building’s energy balance.
| The durability of an innovative polymeric coating recently developed by the authors to prevent stress corrosion in annealed glass is herein examined.
| In this post, we discuss what emerging designs require and how automotive glass processors can meet these requirements.
| The strength of glass plays an important role in the dimensioning of glass components in the building industry. A major factor determining float glass strength is damage such as scratches or cracks due to the brittle material behavior of glass.
| In this study, the bending process of specially-fabricated double glazing units (‘panels’) is investigated with a focus on a local instability phenomenon.
| This paper presents work undergone for a set of four high-rise towers, featuring 11,136 unique cold-bentpanels, hundreds of which are pushed beyond 250mm.
| The paper presents the results of FEM analysis as well as tests performed on double glazed units including Sikasil® IG-25 secondary sealing joints and SikaGlaze® IG-5 PIB as primary seal.
| Research has shown that the general approach to determine the bending strength of thermally curved glass with the aid of the four-point bending test for flat glass according to EN 1288-3 is applicable.
| In 2015, the bold concept of a curvy tower at 252 East 57th Street, New York, was presented to an audience at the Glass Performance Days conference. At that time, building construction was just beginning, and no one was certain such a novel idea…
| Bent and tempered glass has long been of great interest to the market. The process of creating high-quality tempered bent glass has evolved over the years.
| The latest Glastory post is dealing with the trends in automotive display glass processing.
| Connecting glass with heat bonds is a way to create all-transparent glass structures. Two methods have been researched in theory and practice, glass welding, through local heating, and glass fusion through global heating.
| Latest Glastory blog by Jukka Immonen is dealing with the 5 promises of convection technology in windshield bending.
| The author compares different existing and new application systems for interleaving material for bending windshields.
