Course contentThe two day training course will provide an introduction into structural glazing. The course will be taught as a number of separate modules, which will include:-
- Glass strength
- Interlayer types and the associated performance
- Robustness and Fractography (breakage)
- Common mistakes (lessons learnt)
- Visual assessment criteria
- Relevant standards and regulations
- Blast and ballistic performance.
Each of the modules will comprise of theoretical and practical elements. The course is open to all and would be of particular benefit to engineers and designers who would like to increase their understanding of glass.
The course will run over two days, the first day will be predominantly class room based and will include a number of practical demonstrations. The second day will involve testing a number of glass products within an arena blast test.
