Glass plies used to construct laminated glass are recommended to be either annealed or heat strengthened glass. As a minimum, insulating glass shall use laminated glass for the inboard protected side lite. The width of glazing tape shall be at least equal to two times but not more than four times the thickness designation of the glass to which it adheres. The width of silicone or glazing tape is referred to as bite and is shown and discussed in Guide C1564. The system shall be designed to ensure that the glazing fails prior to the framing system that supports the glazing and its attachment to the structural framing system. The fasteners that attach the framing system that supports the glazing to the structural framing system shall be designed to resist a uniform load acting on the blast resistant glazing that has a magnitude of at least: 1. Blast testing has shown that use of fully tempered glass plies, when fractured during a blast event, have poorer post blast performance than annealled or heat strengthened glass plies. Laminated glass fabricated with fully tempered glass plies has a tendency to leave the supporting glazing system frame after fracture whereas laminated glass fabricated with annealed or heat strengthened glass plies will remain in the frame and absorb remaining load through tensile membrane behavior. Use of the annealed or heat strengthened glass plies will also reduce the amount of load transferred into the structure. Values given in parentheses are for information only.

E-mail: nimal. Glazed facades are the most preferred in buildings by the 29 engineers and architects because of their architectural features and aesthetical aspects.

Most 30 of the buildings have 4-10 m high glazed facades in ground floor lobby areas without any 31 structural framework. If building facades disintegrate, direct blast pressure entering the building can cause 34 injuries to occupants and even structural collapse. Blast resistant glazing should therefore be 35 used in buildings to minimize, if not eliminate the hazard from potential terrorist attacks.

It has a superior blast resistance compared to monolithic glass and 38 hence mostly used in blast resistant glazing. The major advantage of LG is that even if the 39 glass cracks, the interlayer holds the glass fragments instead of forming free flying shards.

Use of 42 annealed or heat strengthened glass types in LG, instead of fully tempered glass, has hence 43 been recommended Norville and Conrath 2001.

Polyvinyl butyral PVB is commonly used 44 as the interlayer material in LG glass, but some stiffer interlayer materials such as ionoplast is 45 also used in practice Ledbetter et al. LG panels are fixed to the window frames using 46 structural sealant joints where silicone and rubber are the common sealant materials.

Shortcomings 53 and limitations in those design standards and test methods are briefly discussed. This paper extends 56 their previous research work to apply their modeling techniques to analyze LG panels under 57 blast loads. The comprehensive information provided through such analysis will not only 58 enhance the understanding on the blast response of LG panels, but also facilitate their design.

Results from FE analysis are used to examine 61 the failure of glass, interlayer and sealant joints. Energy absorption of different components is studied and the importance of 64 the interlayer properties is highlighted, as they are not accounted for in the current design 65 standards.

In practice, engineers do blast testing to check their designs that they had carried 66 out according to design standards. Modeling techniques presented in this paper could be used 67 to complement and supplement existing design standards for the design of LG panels, where 68 applicable, and also as a solution when they are not applicable, reducing costs, risks and 69 environmental pollution involved with blast testing. Existing design standards and their 74 limitations are reviewed below.

This standard recommends 78 using either annealed or heat strengthened glass types for the glass panes than using fully 79 tempered glass which has shown a poor post-blast performance during blast testing.

For a given 82 charge weight and standoff distance, the 3-second duration equivalent design load should be 83 selected from the chart shown in Fig.

This chart was 84 developed using the results from a number of blast tests conducted on LG panels for 85 hemispherical charge weights at ground level.

The width bite of the 90 structural silicone sealant bed should be at least equal to or greater than 10 mm or the 91 nominal thickness of the glass panes, while less than twice the nominal thickness of glass 92 panes to which it adheres. The minimum thickness of the structural silicone sealant bed 93 should be 5 mm.

ASTM F - Wikipedia

The glazing tape should be within two to four times the thickness of the 94 glass pane. Framing system supporting the glazing should be attached mechanically 98 to the structural framing system using fasteners that should be designed to resist uniform load 99 acting on the glazing.

The design load of the fasteners should be two times the magnitude of 100 the load resistance of the glazing if the maximum air blast pressure is greater than one half 101 the magnitude of the load resistance of glazing. On the other hand, the fasteners should be 102 designed to a load equal to the load resistance of the glazing if the maximum air blast 103 pressure is less than one half the magnitude of the load resistance of glazing.

When a 107 LG panel fails under a minimal hazard, it is expected to fracture but it should remain in the 108 frame without any failure at the sealant joints and the supportive frame.

ASTM F 2248

The chart shown in Fig. This standard 117 therefore does not account the effects due to the variations of the thickness of the interlayer 118 and also the effects of different interlayer materials with varied material properties for the 119 blast response of LG panels.

A conservative design approach based on static analysis is used to design window 122 frames, fasteners and other supporting elements. The former describes an approach of designing blast resistant windows 128 basically with LG, while the later provides a design approach with monolithic fully tempered 129 glass.

UFC 4-010-01 DoD 2013 defines 133 different levels of protections known as below at standard, very low, low, medium and high, 134 which correspond to high hazard, low hazard, very low hazard, minimal hazard and no hazard 135 respectively according glazing hazard ratings defined in ASTM F 1642-04 ASTM 2010b. Conventional construction standoff distance 141 implies the minimum standoff distance required by a DOD building to achieve either very 142 low or low level of protections without any measures for blast resistance.

Buildings must at 143 least satisfy the minimum standoff distance requirement and those that do not meet 6 144 conventional construction standoff distances or that required a higher level of protection 145 should be designed for the potential blast threat at the available standoff distance. Minimum interlayer thickness should be 0. Design should be carried out using 1 for both load and strength 160 reduction factors for all methods of analysis referenced in UFC 4-010-01 DoD 2013.

The blast load is treated as a triangular load and a 164 simplified single degree of freedom SDOF model is used to simulate the dynamic response 165 of the glass panels. The glass panels are analyzed based on large deflection plate theory since 166 the panel deflections are large compared to thickness of the panel. The maximum allowable 167 principal tensile stress of glazing is used as 16000 psi 110 Mpa in the standard.

Design 7 168 deflection is the center deflection which corresponds to maximum principal tensile stress at 169 any point in the glass panel. In addition to charts, set of formulae is given in the 175 standard to design blast resistant glazing. Framing members should be designed for the load 176 transferred from the glass panel and static design blast load applied to all exposed members. This 181 standard uses a simplified SDOF analysis method to study the blast response of glazed panels 182 by accounting for the positive phase of the blast load only.

The design charts developed in 183 this standard are applicable for monolithic fully tempered glass only. The maximum length 184 and width of the glass panels that could be designed with UFC 3-340-02 DOD 2008 are 185 limited to about 3 and 1. However, it could be noted that the generalized 186 analyse and design method given in this standard can be applied for the design of LG or any 187 glazing type with different sizes, if the corresponding load-resistance curve is determined 188 from an analytical or experimental study.

Pre-crack resistance function is derived based on large 194 deflection plate theory by considering the dynamic breaking strength of glass. The dynamic 195 breaking strengths used in the design are 80 MPa for annealed glass and 200 MPa for fully 196 tempered glass.

The post-crack resistance function is derived considering the membrane 197 action of PVB interlayer, but neglecting the stiffness of cracked glass panes. Based on the 198 extensive blast tests conducted for common window sizes used in the UK about 1. Each contour line in the diagram connects P-I pairs giving same 205 deflection and stress, and those are called iso-damage lines. The lower contour line represents 206 the P-I pairs causing initial crack of the glass pane while the upper contour line represents P-I 207 pairs causing tearing of the PVB interlayer.


Known blast threats can be marked on the P-I 208 diagram of a selected LG panel to estimate its performance under the blast threat. The panel 209 edges should be securely held in robust frames by using structural silicone sealant with a 210 width bite of about 35 mm.

Support reactions can be obtained based on equivalent SDOF 211 factors for two-way spanning simply supported panes with a uniform load. It is restricted to military use 213 giving limited access to the external users. The authors could not find a copy of this 214 document and hence limited information is given in the paper. UK Glazing Hazard Guide 215 1997 is limited to a few window sizes used in the UK and therefore has a limited 216 application in designing blast resistant glazing in real buildings.

This report describes two design approaches known as 221 static and dynamic approach that could be used to design single glazing units or insulated 222 glazing units fabricated with LG to blast loads. This 225 approach was described earlier in the paper and is also described in detail in PDC-TR 10-02 226 2012 with some worked examples. The 229 authors prefer the use of FE codes when analyzing and designing glazing under blast loads 230 and their approach is described later.

However, PDC-TR 10-02 2012 provides some useful 231 information on computer programs and their applications to design window systems under 232 blast loads. These programs are based on SDOF analysis where 235 their approach is an iterative process of selecting initial glazing or member size and then 236 repeating the analysis until the window system is found to have an acceptable response.

One of the major limitations is that the design outcome will be much conservative as 10 241 it is based on simplified SDOF analysis. On the other hand, a comprehensive knowledge and 242 an understanding about the computer program are required to achieve feasible and safe 243 design. However, these programs generate the output results in numbers unlike in the FE 244 codes where it is possible to observe the predicted response and the failure pattern.

These test methods can be classified into 248 two types as arena air blast test and shock tube test. An arena air blast test is carried out in an 249 open environment and is expensive compared to the shock tube test, but it tests several test 250 panels simultaneously.

A shock tube test is carried out in a closed tube and is not a realistic 251 test, but is capable of reproducing the same shock repeatedly. The hazard rating of a glazing system is determined based on the severity 258 of fragments generated during the blast testing.

The severity of fragments is determined by 259 considering the number, size and location of fragments observed after the test. A fragment is 260 defined as any particle having a united dimension of 2. Testing can be conducted using either arena air blast or shock tube test types from 265 which the blast load is obtained.

This standard requires at least three test specimens 266 representative of a glazing or glazing system to be tested at a given blast load and an 267 additional specimen should be used for pre-test measurements.

Pressure transducers are used 268 to record the blast pressure on the test panel during the testing. ISO 16933 ISO 2007a covers broad 274 range of blast parameters incorporating 7 standard blasts simulating vehicle bombs and 7 275 standard blasts simulating smaller hand-carried satchel bombs.

On the other hand, ISO 16934 276 ISO 2007b applies for blast waves generated in shock tube facility, simulating the reflected 277 pressures and impulses generated from high-explosive detonations of approximately 30-2500 278 kg TNT at standoff distances from about 35-50 m. However, 286 non-standard test specimens could only be tested, but not classified according to these 287 standards. The fasteners that attach the framing system that supports the glazing to the structural framing system shall be designed to resist a uniform load acting on the blast resistant glazing that has a magnitude of at least: Graphic Courtesy Graham Architectural Products.

Values given in parentheses are for information only. Steel reinforcement or tubing within the window frame can provide added resistance to blast overpressures. Views Read Edit View history. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

Blast resistance is typically only a requirement in federal facilities; however, it should be noted that building design for blast resistance is also a growing trend in the commercial and residential private sectors.

Batten bars may be used to increase the anchorage capacity of the glass itself. Blast mitigation design is a rapidly evolving trend in the building industry. In the first stage of an explosive blast, the shock wave expansion impacts the exterior envelope and structural components, creating an upward force on the floor levels as it passes through the structure.

Structural design 224 blast resistance focuses on minimizing potential for progressive collapse through structural redundancy. Consideration for the type of glass with respect to breaking strength and behavior is also important. The purpose of blast resistant design is to minimize the hazards caused by a blast as opposed to preventing damages. Conditions vary with respect to the travel distance astmm the breakage debris.

Since then, ISC has taken on a new approach to address the full spectrum of security threats through a series of documents outlining new security levels; baseline security countermeasures and implementation; risk assessment and identification; and performance measurement.
