| A comparison between measured and declared values
| This is the first video in Glaston's new #AskGlaston Insulating Glass Manufacturing Series.
| In situ detection of product age and argon concentration as measure of the re-use potential of insulating glass units in buildings
The Effect of Welding Speed on the Micromorphology and Mechanical Properties of Laser-Sealed Vacuum Flat Glazing Joints
| The aim is to provide a theoretical basis for vacuum plate glazing laser sealing manufacturing.
| A Review of Essential Requirements towards Standardization
| This paper presents some of major outcomes of Finite Element (FE) numerical methods and simulations that have been explored in the framework of the GLASS-SHARD research project for glass windows and facades under explosion or soft-body impact.
| In this research, the structural sealed façade structure with triple IGU was investigated and the effect of the thickness of ordinary and laminated glasses.
| This paper reviews the high-temperature behavior of a selected range of silicones used for sealing and bonding in construction.
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 work discusses the results from first feasibility investigations dealing with the choice of adhesive and identifying a suitable activation procedure for Fe-SMA strips adhesively bonded to glass elements.
| After seaming, grinding glass edges is another important work step in glass edge processing. The process is primarily used to remove overbreaks and underbreaks at the edges and to process the glass sheets to size.
| In glass edge processing, cutting the glass sheet is directly followed by the seaming process. Fully unprocessed glass edges exhibit overbreaks and underbreaks, conchoidal fractures, as well as micro-cracks along the broken edge.
| In glass edge processing, the requirements for the finished components can vary greatly depending on the location and purpose.
| There are parts of the window inside the glass that play a crucial role in its performance.
| Five commercial glazing system analysis and a project study show the advantages of using Insulated Glass Unit (IGU) edges to mechanically attach glass to buildings.
| UNStudio made a beautiful design for the C&A building with a lots of glass elements to connect with the buildings around.
Nonlinear Calculations Methods for Polymeric Materials in Structural Glass Construction - an Overview
| The present work uses non-linear material laws for FEA and exhibits the behavior of the sealant joint in various load scenarios on several projects.
| This paper focusses on the special glass part of the façade.
