Influence of EVA, PVB and Ionoplast Interlayers on the Structural Behaviour and Fracture Pattern of Laminated 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 his blogs, Luc Moeyersons covered various subjects related to laminated glass, whether it is automotive, architectural, or photovoltaic.
| This paper offers an in-depth exploration of EVA-based encapsulants, which are widely used in the photovoltaic industry but also have potential for specific architectural glass applications.
Determination and evaluation of the interlaminar shear modulus of polyvinyl butyral using fibre optic sensors
| The study describes the results of the shear modulus of viscoelastic interlayers made of polyvinyl butyral and provides the basis to define and evaluate a model for the finite element analysis.
| This text looks at the two systems of vertical and horizontal hot boxes, as well as the laminating cycles for PVB and EVA. It also compares the process to an autoclave PVB laminating process.
Determination of the linear viscoelastic material behaviour of interlayers with semi-crystalline structures
| Determination of the linear viscoelastic material behaviour of interlayers with semi-crystalline structures shown by the example of a semi-crystalline ionomer
Investigations on the execution and evaluation of the Pummel test for polyvinyl butyral based interlayers
| This paper shows different Pummel classifications that can currently be found on the market. Subsequently, approaches to the automatization and standardization of the execution and especially the evaluation of the Pummel test are shown.
Experimental Characterization and Finite Element Modelling of Strain-rate Dependent Hyperelastic Properties of PVB Interlayers
| The article describes the mechanical behaviour of PVB interlayer and the constitutive models by which the polymer can be represented under different load cases.
| This paper presents the experimental results of a three-point bending test conducted on laminated glass at elevated temperature in an environmental chamber.
| The paper describes the research and development of phosphorescent glass.
| The reduction of greenhouse gases is one of the most important goals of the international climate policy. Today, roughly one third of all greenhouse gas emissions is created by urban population.
| Glass is a fantastic material… but sometimes it breaks.
| PVB is increasingly assuming the leading role among alternative encapsulation materials for solar cells as the alternatives to Ethylene-Vinyl-Acetate (EVA)
