Post-breakage Behavior Of Architectural Glazing In Windstorms
The selection of architectural glazing products for use in tall buildings has evolved into a complex process in a relatively short period of time. Many new factors have to be considered in the design procedure, and the array of new available products has created unlimited design choices. Among the new design considerations are missile impacts and the behavior of glass after breakage in a windstorm. Post-breakage behavior is described, principally, in terms of resistance to small missile impact, glass particle fallout and the propensity of glass panels to remain in the frame. These behavioral characteristics are directly related to hazards to people and a desire to protect the building and its interior furnishings and equipment from the effects of windstorms. © 1992.
