For decades glass in buildings have been effectively and safely designed in North America using the principles of ASTM E1300 and other ASTM International standards. As the use of glass in buildings become more complex with the trend to larger sizes, standards are evolving. With the influx of imported glass, compliance and understanding of the […]

Float glass is produced all over the world. Storage and transport conditions depend on the local conditions and influence the corrosion state of the glass. On the other hand, the glass surface more and more becomes the substrate of high sophisticated functional coatings. As a consequence, a perfect glass surface is decisive because even smallest […]

Silicone Structural Glazing (Glass Bonding) has been applied successfully for more than 50 years on glass façades. Historically, joint dimensions have been calculated using an analytical simplified equation which is implemented in various standards (e.g. ETAG002, ASTM C1401). As modern glass façade projects increase in design complexity and performance requirements, it becomes necessary to develop […]

Numerous investigations have shown that the maximum glass stresses in laminated glass (LG) can be reduced significantly by respecting the shear bond through the polymeric interlayer during the structural design process. The large variety of interlayer materials and the typical time- and temperature-dependent behaviour of polymers make the consideration of the interlayer in the design […]

By an independent observer of the flat glass industry I am going to focus the workshop on a global observation of the coated glass business/industry. I will show how we moved from a dominant pyrolytic approach (in the 1970’s) to a dominant vacuum deposition approach (1990’s & 2000’s). I will cover subjects which are not […]

The workshop introduces the water-glass facade system, an innovation developed and patented by Dr Matyas Gutai. Water-glass systems are hybrid structures that are built utilizing glass and water infill, which improves the structural and energy performance of the system compared to standard solid glass systems. The most important novelty of the structure is its capacity […]
