1 Evaluation of risk of breakage by thermal shock 2008 Technical Advisory Service

2 Thermal shock Definition Parameters of influence Method of calculation Example of calculation

3 Thermal shock - Definition A breaking by thermal shock occurs when there is a too high difference of temperature between two point of a annealed glass. Indeed, if the temperature of the glass increases, this glass expands. Reminder : Coefficient of linear expansion : m/(m °C) Ex: T° difference of 50°C for a 2 m glass m/(m °C) x 50°C x 2 m = 0,0009 m = 0,9 mm

4 Thermal shock - Definition This phenomenon does not present a problem if the increase in temperature is uniform on all the glazing and if the movement is not blocked. On the other hand, if the border of the glazing remains cold, it will prevent the hot part from dilating freely and it results the beginning traction constraints. At a certain difference of temperature between two points of a same glazing, there is a risk of thermal breakage.

8 Thermal breakage starts allways at the edge of the glass, perpendicular to the edge and the 2 faces. The breakage can be single or multiple.

10 Definition Parameters of influence Method of calculation Example of calculation

11 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Climatic conditions Parameters depending of the glazing and its setting Outside « architectural » parameters Inside « architectural » parameters

12 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Climatic conditions : –Daily difference of temperature (°C) –Solar intensity (W/m²)

13 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Parameters depending of the glazing and its setting –Nature of glass Energy absorption (EA)

14 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Parameters depending of the glazing and its setting –Type of setting and colour of the frame

15 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Parameters depending of the glazing and its setting –Structural glazing –VGG –Alu with thermal break –Dark alu without thermal break –Middle alu without thermal break –Wood or PVC –Clear alu without thermal break –Dark steel –Clear steel –Concrete/Masonry

16 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Parameters depending of the glazing and its setting –State of the glass edges : damaged edges or presenting chips increase the risk of thermal breaking, these one starting from these weak points.

17 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Parameters depending of the glazing and its setting –Use of TV or sliding frame with Low E Toughened or heat strengthened glass

18 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence

19 Parameters depending of the glazing and its setting –Glass in a roof Outside temperature Inside temperature

20 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Outside « architectural » parameters –Exposure of the facade (in the Northern hemisphere)

21 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence

23 Outside « architectural » parameters –Eventual shadows on the glazing (eaves of a building, blind) and letting only one part of the glazing in the shadow.

29 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence Inside « architectural » parameters –Presence of blinds –Proximity of heating appliances –Proximity of the inside aeration forcing air system (hot or cold) on the glazing –Inside ceiling –Proximity of a dark object behind the glazing

32 Thermal shock – Parameters of influence h L Risk if L < h

33 Thermal shock Definition Parameters of influence Method of calculation Example of calculation

34 1°) Basic calculation of t : SV: t = I. AE + A. h e h e + h i h e + h i With I = solar intensity (750 à 850 W/m²) A = maximum daily t° range (10 à 13 °C) DV: t e = … t i = … Thermal shock – « Glass in building » method

35 2°) Influence of the inside blinds : t 1 = t + t Thermal shock – « Glass in building » method

36 2°) Influence of the inside blinds : Values of t Simple glazing Ventilated space Non ventilated space Open weave3°C6°C Closed weave4°C7°C Venetian blinds5°C8°C Thermal shock – « Glass in building » method

37 2°) Influence of the inside blinds : Values of t Double glazing Outside glazingInside glazing Ventilat ed space Non ventilat ed space Ventilated space Non ventilated space Open weave 2°C4°C 8°C Closed weave 3°C5°C 9°C Venetian blinds 4°C6°C 10°C Thermal shock – « Glass in building » method

38 3°) Influence of the frame : t 2 = t 1 x f 1 Thermal shock – « Glass in building » method

42 Criteria of acceptability : – T 3 < 30°C OK – T 3 > 30°C a thermal treatment (toughened or heat strengthened) is necessary Thermal shock – « Glass in building » method Stress in the glass : = E. = E.. T 3 = 0,63. T 3

43 Notes : –Thermal treatment can be toughened or heat strengthened glass –Advantage of a toughned glass : it is a safety glass against injuries too –Advantage or a heat strengthened glass : does not present a risk of spontaneous breakin and so, no heat soak treatment is needed Thermal shock – « Glass in building » method

44 Notes : –The edge treatment is not considered as a good solution to prevent of the risk of thermal shock –The spandrels must always be tempered Thermal shock – « Glass in building » method
