Status of the introduction of E DIN 18008

In the MVV TB, the 2010 and / or 2013 versions of the 18008 are still specified, as are these versions and thus the default settings in GLASGLOBAL®. ⇒ Link DIBT (only available in german)

For DIN, the draft versions Part 1 and 2 of June 2019 are additionally available and these are shown as an option in GLASGLOBAL®. Link DIN

Which standard version is to be used for the calculation of a special BV must be discussed with the client or the competent building authority.

Tested products available in the new accustic database

The software products “WINSLT®” and “GLASGLOBAL®” of Sommer Informatik GmbH from Rosenheim were extended by a database for tested superstructures and their accustic insulation dimensions.

WINSLT® is the software solution for calculating light, solar and thermal properties of glazing in combination with sun protection.

GLASGLOBAL® is the software for the calculation of the static proof according to DIN 18008 and the load assumptions according to DIN EN 1991-1. Both products have access to the stored accustic database.

Currently there are already more than 150 products in the accustic database, all of which, including the respective test certificate, can be used for calculations.

Furthermore, you have the possibility to select the products already available in the software and to compare them via the automatic product search with the superstructures available in the accustic database.

You can also store specially generated products in the software as user-defined products and compare them with the existing products in the accustic database.

WINSLT® and GLASGLOBAL® will give you a list of the products from the accustic database that match your structure or have similarities.

Due to the large participation of manufacturers of glazings and sun protection equipment, we provide you with the accustic database, a constantly growing product database for your calculations.

Sommer Informatik – presents software news at the “Fensterbau Frontale” in Nuremberg!

From 21.03. – 24.03.2018 the world’s largest trade fair for window, door and facade construction took place in Nuremberg. Sommer Informatik GmbH presented their newest developments in the field of building physics calculation of windows, facades and glass.

The Sommer informatik impressed by the new functions of the WINISO® software solution.

WINISO® was developed in connection with the new version of the ISO 10077-2 standard and is already being used successfully by a large number of national and international companies. In addition to the existing functions such as the calculation of heat flows, thermal bridges, isotherms and Uf values according to EN ISO 1077-2:2018 or the highly automated, detailed CAD processing, the Sommer Informatik team presented the new functions for steam diffusion calculation and the calculation of Ufr, Ueg and Ucg values according to ISO 15099 and NFRC.

Even visitors who showed interest in the “GLASGLOBAL®” software for glass design according to DIN 18008 were not disappointed. Mr. Dipl.-Inf. Robert Sommer (Managing Director of Sommer Informatik GmbH) presented the new add-on “shear modulus”.

Sommer Informatik GmbH presented the new version with updated spectral data, new composite layers e.g. Trosifol® and the update of EN 13363-2 to the new standard EN ISO 52022-3 to interested parties of the software “WINSLT®” for the calculation of solar radiation, light transmission and temperatures in glazing.

With this year’s Fensterbau Frontale in Nuremberg, Sommer Informatik GmbH was able to establish important contacts and achieve numerous promising inquiries.

Sommer Informatik Software GLASGLOBAL achieves 100% of the mandatory requirements

The Federal Association of flat glass from Troisdorf has taken the trouble to create a detailed and extensive list of obligations in relation to Glasstatiksoftware. The background is the new DIN 18008, which is already present in Parts 1 and 2 and is largely known in Parts 3 and 4. These requirements, divided into mandatory requirements and “Nice to Have criteria”, have now been compared with all providers of Glasstatic software in cooperation with TU Darmstadt. As the only program the product “GlasGlobal” of the Sommer Informatik GmbH in Rosenheim achieved 100% of the mandatory requirements and 52% of the nice-to-have-criteria ….
