Calculation Model of Laminated Glass Panes
Model to Download
This model was used to explain two calculation options, 2D and 3D, when designing glass in the RF-GLASS add-on module.
Model Used in
For designing glass in the RF‑GLASS add‑on module, you can use one of two calculation methods: a 2D or a 3D calculation. The main difference of these design options is the automatic modeling of the layers in a temporary model. In a 2D calculation, each layer is generated as a surface element (plate theory), in a 3D calculation as a solid. Depending on the selected layer composition, you can either select an option or will find it preselected by the program.
Depending on stiffness, mass, and damping, structures react differently to wind action.
- Where can I find the details of a layer composition in the RF‑GLASS add-on module?
- I would like to design a glass pane with temperature loads. In this case, a message appears saying that the load case includes the "temperature" surface loads types that are not transferred to the created temporary model. How can I consider the temperature loads?
- How is the coupling stiffness determined in RF‑GLASS?
- Which stresses are most important for glass design consideration when using RF-GLASS?
- Is it possible to design a spherically curved glass pane in RF‑GLASS?
- Are there any programs or add-on modules specially developed for glass structures?
- Which method of analysis is used for insulating glass?
- Is it possible to design insulating glass using the RF-GLASS add-on module?
- Does the activation of the partial safety factor GammaM have an effect on the calculation in RF‑GLASS?
- Is it possible to display the loads of the secondary seal of an insulating glass pane?
