# Subject: Atrium Glass Analysis (2000x1800mm)

## Type: 31.09mm THK DGU GLASS

6mm HS+0.89 SGP+2.2 Sage+16mm AG+6mmHS
Item: Exterior Lite of IGU w/ 4-sides Continuous Support

The following formulae were used to calculate the minimum thickness, the deflection, and the aspect ratio of
the glass pane under a given static wind pressure in accordance with ASTM E1300 and AS 1288.

## Minimum Thickness, tmin = [5 * {(DP * A) - 1.9}] ^ (1 / 1.6) in mm

2
Maximum Deflection = t * exp(r0 + r1 * x + r2 * x ) in mm
0.2
Limiting Aspect Ratio = 8.98 / t for glass thickness < 6mm
1.6 2
= 49.34 * (0.2 * t + 1.9) / t for glass thickness > 6mm
Where:
DP = Design Pressure depends on the type of glass
A = Area of the glass pane, in m2
t = Thickness of the glass pane, in mm
r0 = 0.553 - 3.83*AR + 1.11*AR2 - 0.0969*AR3
r1 = -2.29 + 5.83*AR - 2.17*AR2 + 0.2067*AR3
= 1.485 - 1.908*AR + 0.815*AR2 - 0.0822*AR3
r2
x = ln {ln [WL * A2 / (E * t4)]}
AR = Aspect Ratio, a/b
WL = Wind Load, in kPa
E = Modulus of Elasticity of glass, in kPa

Data Given:
Exterior Lite, t1 = 6 mm
Interior Lite, t2 = 6 mm

2000
Glass Width, b = 2000 mm
Glass Height, a = 1800 mm
Wind Pressure, WP = 1.7 kPa
1800
Type of Support = 4-sided continuous support
Construction = Insulating Glass Unit, IGU
Exterior Lite = Heat Strengthened

## (Unsupported Dimension of Glass)

Result:
Design Pressure, DP = 0.53 kPa
Minimum Thickness, tmin = 3.5 mm
Allowable Deflection, = 20.00 mm (L/90 or 20mm)
Limiting Aspect Ratio = 6.28

Conclusion:
Design Thickness, t1 = 6.0 mm OK
Maximum Deflection = 14.19 mm OK
Aspect Ratio, AR = 1.11 OK
Deflection Ratio = 70.94 Percent OK

Note:
As per the results of analyses above, the proposed glass type and thickness of glass is adequate to
