Building code requirements for wind-borne debris protection have been in existence since the mid- 1990s, and as a result, many glazing systems have been tested and certified to these performance requirements.
For nearly 50 years, glass has been used as structural elements in glass fin applications. These applications include interior and exterior projects, supporting facades, canopies, storefronts, curtain walls and skylights.
Originally developed for glazing in hurricane zones, SentryGlas® ionoplast interlayers are significantly stiffer than standard PVBs such as Butacite®.
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.
In this work, a combined Voronoi and finite-discrete element method (FDEM) approach for reconstructing the post-fracture model of laminated glass (LG) was proposed.
This study forms part of a wider research programme that aims to better address the end-of-life challenges and opportunities in façade design for re-use.
This paper presents the experimental results of a three-point bending test conducted on laminated glass at elevated temperature in an environmental chamber.
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 interlayers.
The determination of interlayer modulus data is complex.
Here, comparisons are made with numerical analyses, performed by implementing an ad hoc routine in the software Straus7, developed by Maffeis Engineering.
Renzo Piano Building Workshop designed a 290,000 sf museum celebrating the artistry and technology of film, becoming the world’s first museum and event space devoted to the Motion Picture.
