At 11:00AM PST, on June 2nd, 2021 the NorCal chapter of IIBEC will host another virtual learning opportunity that qualifies for AIA and IIBEC Continuing Education Credits (CEC).
Please join us for a detailed look into Structural Glass.
About the Presentation:
Felix Weber, an Associate and Façade Specialist at RDH Building Science Inc. will present on:
The different functions of glass systems in tertiary, secondary, and primary structural applications.
The redundancy of individual glass sheets will be reviewed in the context of strength and residual stiffness/safety after breakage, and respective code and testing requirements.
Glass fabrication will be examined at all stages, including floating, coating, tempering, laminating, and assembling.
Case studies will be presented to apply concepts of structural glass design and production to real-world projects.
- Analyze the properties, structures and strengths of various glass types.
- Illustrate an understanding of established design philosophies and explain how they are implemented in current codes of practice.
- Identify structural glass applications in primary, secondary and tertiary structures.
- Describe how glass reacts to different stressors and the various methods to prevent or mitigate the risk of collapse.
