Glass Performance Analysis

A large portion of personal injuries resulting from the effects of an extreme external force on a structure are due to glass fragmentation.  Through the use of Extreme Loading® for Structures (ELS) software, structural engineers can perform significantly advanced structural vulnerability assessments, thereby helping to better understand the performance of a structure’s glazing. ELS is built around the Applied Element Method (AEM), the only method that automatically calculates crack initiation, propagation and separation of elements.


Glass Performance Analysis Features:

  • Models can include the window system, laminate, reinforcement and glass thickness
  • The information generated can be used for technical reports that detail the results of the analysis and offer main conclusions
