| Unlocking the benefits of liquid interlayers for architectural glass lamination
| A theoretical study with applications to blast enhancement
| This paper focuses on the load-carrying behaviour of laminated glass panel supported merely along four edges subjected to compressive force.
| This paper examines various ways of combining paper and glass as a laminate and the effects on transparency.
| Laminated glass recycling is becoming increasingly important and urgent due to limited raw materials.
| The paper deals with the recycling of laminated glass, especially with the effective separation of glass (in the form of cullet) from the polyvinyl butyral (PVB) interlayer film.
| ​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.
| In this study, double-laminated glass plates are impacted by 7.62 mm armour piercing (AP) bullets, and their ballistic limit velocity and curve are determined both through experimental tests and numerical simulations.
| In this paper, failure mechanisms are identified for a post-tensioned glass beam system with a flat stainless steel tendon adhesively bonded at the bottom glass edge.
| Structural interlayers in laminated glass have allowed engineers and specifiers to extend and improve the use of glazing solutions in the construction industry.
| In this study, we investigate double-laminated glass plates under ballistic impact through experimental tests and numerical simulations.
| 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).
| This document provides an overview of the causes of sunburst delamination in laminated glass.
| 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.
| The growing trend for transparency in contemporary architecture has fuelled the demand for load-bearing glass applications in the building industry.
| A Review of Essential Requirements towards Standardization
| 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.
| The bridging behavior between fragments is one vital factor in the post-fracture stage of glass laminates.
| Laminating glass is a process that requires precision and safety. In order to ensure that the glass is laminated safely and to a high standard, special cleanroom requirements must be met. This includes air pressure, clothing, static charges, and…
