| Curved glass is fundamental in advanced architecture which incorporates a magnitude of glass with organic forms throughout these cutting-edge design structures.
| The objective of this research is to facilitate a waste-free fabrication of doubly curved glass elements and a facile, fast, low-cost mold-making process for the hot bending of glass.
| This paper deals with experiments and numerical simulations of cylindrically curved IGUs.
| 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.
The influence of fracture pattern on the residual resistance of laminated glass at high strain-rates
| An experimental investigation of the post-fracture bending moment capacity based on time-temperature mapping of interlayer yield stress
| The main challenge in the design of the duplex façade was the high aesthetical performance that the façade had to meet.
Investigations on the Cold Bending Behaviour of a Double Glazing Unit with a Rigid Edge-Spacer Frame
| 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.
| “Going ahead of the Curve” is what the advertisement states outside of newly remodeled, Class A office building in Ottawa, Canada.
| 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.
| Glass can form and shape a space, creating transparent architecture that can make you feel closer to the outside world.
| 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.
| Constructions at exceptional locations are often challenging but worth one’s while. Extreme boundary conditions and sophisticated demands of the client have to be considered.
| 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.
Capital C, Geometric Optimization of a Free-Form Steel Gridshell Towards Planar Quadrilateral Glass Units
| This paper focuses on the geometric optimization of the free-form gridshell towards planar quad glass units.
| Latest Glastory blog by Jukka Immonen is dealing with the 5 promises of convection technology in windshield bending.
