Need for Research and Development of Test Methods for Windows


Windows of different shape and size, constructed from a wide variety of glass types and supporting materials, serve many more specific purposes than just the one of allowing light to enter into buildings exposed to changing or even extreme climatic conditions. After defining the window as a complex technical object, this paper stresses the necessity for better, more efficient and standardized test procedures and equipment, calls for coordination of building code provisions, and enumerates the steps to be taken to obtain these improvements.
