Force Load Distribution of Individual Load Cases on Different Insulating Glass Layers

Tips & Tricks

Designing vertical insulating glasses requires assigning different loads on the individual layers of the entire glass unit. This occurs, for example, with simultaneous effect of the wind loading and the fall protection.

In this case, the wind load is to act on the external layer, and the fall protection load is to act on the internal layer. In RF‑GLASS, you can merge the individual load cases into one load combination (CO) and concurrently assign the contained load cases separately to the different glass sides (Table 1.7) and run the calculation.
