Structural silicone joint dimensioning – ETAG002 and beyond

This presentation, given by Valerie Hayez at Glass Performance Days 2019, explores a method for silicone structural joint dimensioning in building facades where large glass dimensions or high wind loads lead to higher deflection and heterogeneous stress distribution in the joint.


Durability of structural sealant in cold bent glazing design

This presentation, given by Jon Kimberlain at Glass Performance Days 2019, examines the use of finite element analysis to indicate stress distribution in different cold bent glass designs.
