GLASTRUCT

GLASTRUCT

Analyzes structural performance of glass and glazing systems. The calculations are done using industry standard ASTM E1300-02. GLASTRUCT's main screen includes support for single or double glazed units, glass thicknesses up to 22 mm, laminated glass, heat strengthened glass, etc. GLASTRUCT calculates glazing load resistance and deflection and also displays Pass/Fail criteria. Calculations are done for short and long load durations, which are determined from the wind loading or other static and dynamic loadings. Standard reports are generated and are available for printing or pdf file generation. Screen Shots
