About this title


More and more glass is being used in buildings. It is no longer considered a fragile material. It is recyclable and affordable. Glass is available in a wide range of architectural, structural, optical and acoustical properties to address the varying requirements of buildings. Knowledge about the use of glass in buildings along scientific lines is a 'gap' in the presently available literature. The book is an attempt to focus on comprehensive guidelines for use of glass in buildings. It covers: *Evolution of glass to the present state, *Glass types with their properties and uses, *Selection of glass for specific applications and uses, *Determination of thickness of glass used in exteriors of buildings, *Safe use of glass in interiors, *Prevalent glazing systems, *'Do's and 'Don'ts' about use of glass in buildings. As consolidated guidelines, the book is of immense value for architects, engineers, designers, consultancy firms, contractors, builders, window fabricators, glass manufacturers, glass processing industry and students of architecture, engineering and interior design.
