| The intention of this paper is to address this gap with the aid of photoelasticity as an indirect measuring method in a coordinated way with numerical simulation based on finite element analysis.
| The two case studies illustrate how the engineering of glass can fluctuate with design intent in unusual scenarios – when we cannot rely solely on conventional codes and standards to guide the analysis.
| In this paper we will look at the potential of what is now a commonly used component in facade design - a load-bearing glass wall panel.
| This paper explores the statistical basis and methodology for the derivation of the Munich climatic load parameters, applying it to climate data for each ASHRAE climate zone in the United States.
| A new design of structural glass application is presented, based on a horizontal self-bearing and pre-stressed glass solution.
| The museum “La Maison des Fondateurs” in Le Brassus, Switzerland will represent the watch making manufacture Audemars Piguet. Audemars Piguet stands for the finest quality, precision as well as innovation based on traditional watchmaking expertise…
Production and Testing of Kiln-cast Glass Components for an Interlocking, Dry-assembled Transparent Bridge
| A pedestrian glass bridge, located at the TU Delft campus site, is being designed by the TU Delft Glass & Transparency Group.
| This paper will describe the design, detailing, testing and construction of structural glass beams as part of load bearing grid shell structure in the newly built Zaryadye Park in Moscow, Russia.
| Laminated glasses consist of two or more glass sheets bonded together with plastic interlayers. The lamination gives to LGs a safer behaviour than monolithic glasses, avoiding injuries to people in case of breakage.
| Insulating glass panes of 5.0 x 2.3 m made of twice-laminated glass 16 mm thick and weighing about 925 kg had to be installed at a height of up to 45 meters as well as 18 mm thick enamelled special glass plates for the tower facing - and this in the…
