| The current study aims to determine the probabilistic fracture strength of glass plates exposed to arbitrary loading and loading rates by a proposed rate-dependent strength prediction model (SPM).
| The growing trend for transparency in contemporary architecture has fuelled the demand for load-bearing glass applications in the building industry.
| This study forms part of a wider research programme that aims to better address the end-of-life challenges and opportunities in façade design for re-use.
| Warm-bent laminated glass is obtained by elastically curving glass plies against a constraining negative mould and by performing, in this condition, the lamination process in autoclave.
| This paper will present exposure protocols including natural weathering, sealants, salt fog and immersion that are used to determine the edge stability characteristic of laminated glass configurations.
| The compatibility of two or more materials consists in their capacity to co-exist in juxtaposition for an indeterminate period of time without manifesting signs of detachment (delamination), discoloration or alterations produced by chemical…
| This article will focus on the edge stability of PVB and ionoplast laminates and address the potential causes of blemishes.
