| In this paper, we present the development of an intrinsic parameter σQM characterizing the sensitivity of a coating (or configuration) to the quench marks.
| This research revolves around the design, fabrication and testing of tubular glass columns, with particular focus on their redundancy and fire-safety mechanisms.
| Can you name all types of dynamic glazing that are available in today’s market? Are you aware of their particular specifications and strengths? Don’t worry even if you can’t. 
| Glass can form and shape a space, creating transparent architecture that can make you feel closer to the outside world.
| Making new and existing buildings as energy efficient as possible is one way to help meet the EU’s CO2 reduction goals.
| Full convection, forced convection, focused convection, recirculated convection – the list of terms goes on and on.
| Limiting global warming require “rapid and far-reaching” transitions in land, energy, industry, buildings, transport, and cities.
| Unitised Façade System Designed with a Highly Transparent Façade of Low G-value Combined with Blast Requirements
| Glass surfaces can be pre-treated so that they do not offer bacteria and viruses a chance to survive and do not aggregate layers of dirt.
| The structural glass for this globe structure is created with laminated double curved glass panels patch supported by a steel structure.
