Traditional Window Glass Design Input  Back to Features

The Window Glass Design 5 single lite window looks nearly the same as the old, but for those using the standard and deluxe packages, don't be deceived, it has a lot more power.

    

  • Allows the input of all the pertinent information for a window including, window glass construction, edge support,  dimensions, window glass thickness, long- and short-duration loading, window glass type, and more.

  • Performs calculations for the following window glass types and constructions supported on 1, 2, 3 and 4 sides:

    • monolithic glass types

      • annealed

      • heat strengthened

      • fully tempered

    • symmetric and asymmetric laminated glass

      • annealed

      • heat strengthened

      • fully tempered

  • Performs calculations for the following window glass types and constructions supported on  4 sides:

    • double glazed insulating glass units

    • triple glazed insulating glass units

  • Performs calculations for aspect ratios from 1 to 10 for all window glass types and constructions supported on four sides

  • Selects the appropriate values from the charts and tables and performs the computations specified in ASTM E 1300-94/98/00/02/03/04/09.

  • Checks the resistance of the window glass to the loads and informs the designer whether the window glass configuration has sufficient load resistance for the specified loads.

  • Provides center of glass deflection under design loading.

  • When the designer uses annealed monolithic window glass, the program provides an approximate probability of breakage for the first occurrence of the design load.

  • The program offers the designer the option of viewing the factors the program selects in performing the ASTM E1300-98/00/02/03/04/09 computations.

  • Updating selected input to modify a proposed design is a simple task, allowing for rapid iterations. 

  • Includes a calculator to convert load magnitude of a specified time duration to the equivalent load magnitude for a different specified time duration

  • Includes a dimensioned sketch of the glass unit
