The potential presence of Nickel Sulfide (NiS), which contaminates glass melt, can provoke “spontaneous” rupture even after years from installation. This is why most standards recommend that glass panels bearing a safety risk are subjected to the Heat Soak Test (HST): they are exposed to a...
The use of structural glass applications with requirements on post-fracture performance has so far only been possible under consideration of large-scale tests. The development of a design concept for fractured laminated glass is the subject of current research in structural glass engineering....
Laminated glass panels are increasingly used to improve the blast resilience of glazed facades, as part of efforts to mitigate the threat posed to buildings and their occupants by terrorist attacks. The blast response of these ductile panels is still only partially understood, with an evident...
In the post-breakage phase, laminated glass (LG) can maintain a residual load-bearing capacity due to the tension stiffening of the polymer through the adhesion with the shards, but the determination of the overall post-breakage stiffness presents formidable difficulties. A simple model is here...
Stress whitening is a common effect in polymers where an increase in brightness or an increased opacity of the material can be observed under mechanical loading. Investigating the stress whitening effect for the transparent structural silicone adhesive (TSSA), this effect occurs in different...
