| A comparison between measured and declared values
| In situ detection of product age and argon concentration as measure of the re-use potential of insulating glass units in buildings
| The paper presents testing of glass panels, static test and dynamic test by hard body impact.
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.
| Glass/steel adhesive joints are being used increasingly in the construction industry as they offer significant structural advantages over conventional mechanical fastener approaches.
| Measurement area separated from glass sheets with buffer plates
| Measurement area in direct thermal contact with specimen
| In this paper, we present the development of an intrinsic parameter σQM characterizing the sensitivity of a coating (or configuration) to the quench marks.
| The goal of this work is to investigate the mechanical performance of VIG’s subjected to soft body impact and gain insight into the failure mechanisms of the VIG when exposed to dynamic loads.
Digital image processing methods for the evaluation of optical anisotropy effects in tempered architectural glass
| In the present paper, optical anisotropy effects in architectural glass are evaluated using digital image processing.
| Post breakage strength of glass is still an unknown area as analytical models for this are inconclusive so far and thus destructive testing is the only reliable solution.
Application of a Mobile Measuring Device for the Planar Evaluation of the Current In-Situ Stress Condition in Glass
| The load-bearing capacity of glass as a structural material as well as sustainability and resistance of a built-in glass against appearing loads and forces is assuming an ever-greater importance.
| Dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) experiments were carried out on three different Saflex® interlayers from commercial production, all at a nominal thickness of 0.76 mm.
| The study describes the results of the principal applicability of fiber optic strain sensors to evaluate the structural behaviour of laminated glass and provides the basis to define a model for the material characteristics of viscoelastic…
| In today’s architecture the bending of glass plays an important role in achieving free forms in modern façades.
| The Surface Compression Stress (SC) data, collected by Stazione Sperimentale del Vetro, were analysed to compare the measurements carried out by Scalp-05 (Scattered Light Polariscope) and Laser Gasp (Strainoptics’ GASP® Polarimeter).
| This paper was first presented at GPD 2019 by Louis Moreau from AGNORA, Canada.
| In this article, the prestressing profile of chemically prestressed glass panes is investigated and two different measurement methods for recording surface compressive stress will be presented.
| The Correct Adaptation of IR Thermometers and Cameras to Different Applications
| The use of laminated safety glass instead of single glass sheets is especially important in order to mitigate the risks of potential post-breakage behaviour and thus for the fixation of glass fragments in case of damage to the glass.
