How can I consider thermal toughening for the design value of load-bearing capacity of glass?

Answer

By selecting the 'Thermally Toughened' check box, it is possible to consider the toughening for the ultimate limit state design (see the figure). If you select this option, Formula (2) (8.3.6/DIN18008‑1:2010‑12) will be used; otherwise Formula (3) applies.

When selecting the material, it is preselected by default, but can be be adjusted by user-defined settings.
