Following a short overview outlining key design objectives, the fabrication process of an opaque composite glass panel is described in detail.
Over the past few years London has enjoyed a building boom seeing a large number of developments particularly in the residential and commercial office sectors.
Contemporary architectural transparency (understood as the optical property of the material) is constantly being redefined and, over the last decade, new design trends have developed related to transparent façades in architecture.
The integration of smart glazing and adaptive façade in buildings can lead to large performance improvements and added functionality compared to conventional static building envelope systems.
The performance of the glazed sections of the facade is essential for providing the maximum possible comfort for the building occupants, while minimizing the energy and resource demands of the building.
The Correct Adaptation of IR Thermometers and Cameras to Different Applications
Recently, the uniform load resistance of enamel coated glass plates has become a topic of interest with respect to proposed changes to ASTM E1300.
As a manufacturer and supplier of monolithic, laminated and insulated glass panels, we often produce larger panels that must use heat-treated components, ionoplast interlayers and multi-layer assemblies.
This paper demonstrates the feasibility of training machine learning algorithms on structural data and their potential application as a predictive tool in early stage design work.
Laminated glass deteriorates with time when subject to different environmental conditions. In this work, the impact of different environmental conditions on post-fracture performance is investigated by means of through-crack tensile tests on small scale PVB laminates.
A new design of structural glass application is presented, based on a horizontal self-bearing and pre-stressed glass solution.
Façade transparency is becoming an increasingly significant design factor for both client and architect, which has aesthetic and comfort implications.
