Vulnerability and Protection of Glass Windows and Facades under Blast: Experiments, Methods and Current Trends
| This paper presents a review on the state of art of analysis and design of glass window/facade system under blast loading, with evidence of available experimental outcomes, design methods and trends, open challenges.
Construction technology on dismantlement and reconstruction of point supported glass curtain wall for airport terminal building
| This paper takes the curtain wall reconstruction project of the Wuhan Tianhe Airport T2-T3 Terminal building as the research object.
| The main objective of this paper was to assess the performance of a new WFG-unitized facade as a high-performance envelope with dynamic thermal properties.
| This paper presents an approach to the estimation of a window shape for increasing the adaptability of glass façade-cleaning robots to different buildings.
The Effects of the Large-Scale Factor on the Integrity Parameters of Monolithic Fire-Resistant Glass
| Glass structures are subject to high fire safety requirements. Two methods are employed in this work: experimental studies of small-sized and large-sized samples and simulations of heating glass structures.
Calibrated Numerical Approach for the Dynamic Analysis of Glass Curtain Walls under Spheroconical Bag Impact
| The structural design of glass curtain walls and facades is a challenging issue, considering that building envelopes can be subjected extreme design loads.
| This study describes what to our knowledge is the first full scale fire resistance tests of Timber-Glass composites beams.
Seismic assessment and finite element modeling of traditional vs innovative point fixed glass facade systems
| This paper aims to assess the seismic performance of glazed facade systems, widely adopted in modern buildings, focusing on point fixed glass facade systems (PFGFSs), also referred to as “spider glazing”.
| A review of experimental research and main influencing parameters
| In this paper, the attention is given to a glass facade built in 1962 and currently subjected to accidental bird-strike.
Influence of EVA, PVB and Ionoplast Interlayers on the Structural Behaviour and Fracture Pattern of Laminated Glass
| The research paper gives an idea and compares the structural behaviour and fracture pattern and evaluates laminated glass samples with PVB, Ionoplast and EVA interlayers.
| This paper reports on the spectrophotometric characterization of glazings transmittance for the study of components of a modular façade system and its suitability for the climate of Portugal.
| This article proposes a methodology for the structural design of multi-layered glass beams considering lateral-torsional buckling.
| Given the growing spread of glass as a construction material, the knowledge of structural response must be ensured, especially under dynamic accidental loads.
| A window's glazing properties play a key role in defining the quality and quantity of transmitted daylight in a space.
| The idea was realized in a collaborative research effort of TU Berlin, BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg and Josef Gartner GmbH that resulted in a full-scale mock-up of a Double‑Skin Facade.
| This study investigates the structural behavior of adhesive bonds of glass and metal using thin, structural silicones in heavily constrained applications.
