  2. 2. Strength Design Methods for Glass Structures

    Author : Maria Fröling; Institutionen för byggvetenskaper; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; finite element; computational techniques; laminated glass; stress concentration factor; design chart; bolt fixing; adhesive joint; balustrade; shear-capacity; dynamic impulse load; insulated glass;

    Abstract : In this thesis, user friendly and efficient methods for the design of glass structures are developed. The glass structures comprise various boundary conditions. Several types of glass are considered: single layered glass as well as laminated and insulated glass units. Typical load cases for strength design of glass are applied. READ MORE

  3. 3. Additive manufacturing of fused silica glass

    Author : Pawel Maniewski; Michael Fokine; Fredrik Laurell; Daniel Milanese; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; laser cladding; 3d printing; additive manufacturing; glass; fused silica; laser; scattering; silica; Optik och fotonik; Optics and Photonics; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Materials Science and Engineering;

    Abstract : Additive Manufacturing, of both metals and polymers, has seen rapid development in recent years, whereas the progress in glass has been rather slow. Today, glass can be considered the last frontier without a specialized 3D printing method available. READ MORE

  4. 4. Laser processing of Silica based glass

    Author : Patrik Holmberg; Fredrik Laurell; Valerio Pruneri; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fiber Bragg Gratings; photosensitivity; Glass; laser machining; optical fibers; fiber sensor; Fysik; Physics;

    Abstract : The main topic of this thesis work is photosensitivity and photo-structuring of optical fibers and bulk glass. Although research in the field of photosensitivity in glass and optical fibers has been ongoing for more than three decades, the underlying mechanisms are still not well understood. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modification of Float Glass Surfaces by Ion Exchange

    Author : Stefan Karlsson; Bo Jonson; Helmut Schaeffer; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Ion exchange; float glass; surface modification; surface colour; flexural strength; Glasteknologi; Glass Technology;

    Abstract : Glass is a common material in each person’s life, e.g. drinking vessels, windows, displays, insulation and optical fibres. By modifying the glass surface it is possible to change the performance of the entire glass object, generally known as Surface Engineering. READ MORE
