The broad focus of this comprehensive, new publication is the quality, design, use, and performance of architectural glass. Sixteen peer-reviewed papers cover:
Quality Issues--addresses the problems associated with the use of ASTM C1036 for field inspections of glass; the interrelationship between building codes and glass standards; on-line quality control measuring systems for tempered and heat-strengthened glass; and the impact of self-cleaning glass.
Performance Assessments--presents developments around the performance of insulating glass and glass facades, including in-situ dew point testing to assess life span of insulating glass units; and an assessment of annual energy consumption of ventilated double glass facades using computer simulation.
Glass Design--examines the structural performance of laminated glass made with stiff interlayers; design methodologies for glass, including rectangular window glass supported on three sides; large trapezoidal window glass lites; window glass design software based on ASTM E1300; and a new procedure for thermal stress evaluation of monolithic glass.
Glass in Hurricanes--addresses special design considerations for glass used in hurricane-prone areas, including retrofitting commercial structures with laminated glass and testing of annealed glass with anchored-film glass retention systems.
Glass for Fire Safety and Security--covers a broad spectrum of topics, including security glazing, fire rated glass and sprinklers, and a design procedure for blast resistant laminated glass.
Audience: This publication is a valuable resource for architects; specifiers;laboratory personnel; consultants; and glass manufacturers, fabricators, and installers.
