| This paper gives an overview of experimental research performed on glazing subjected to fire loading.
| Spandrel glazing has developed to a stage where more efficient insulation can generate higher thermal stresses than can normally be resisted by heat strengthened (HS) glass on which ceramic enamel (frit) has been applied.
| This information introduces the concept of thermal stress which may be induced in glass as a result of exposure to solar radiation.
