Abstract

The bending stiffness of insulating glass units can be significantly improved by including an aluminium honeycomb core continuously bonded to both glass panes. This arrangement also offers a number of additional advantages, ranging from an improved post-breakage behaviour to a particular translucent look. This paper provides an overview of the structural, thermal and visual advantages and drawbacks of glass-honeycomb composite panels and also describes its development, testing and fabrication method. Finally, a design method is proposed.
