GLASGLOBAL©, the expert software of Rosenheimer Sommer Informatik for the calculation of the static proof of glazing according to DIN 18008 part 1-6, has now been validated by a Munich university. The suitability test carried out as part of a software quality assurance was successfully passed without any problems.
With this certification, Sommer Informatik GmbH, an expert in building physics software, has created a unique selling point for its GLASGLOBAL© solution that should give it a clear competitive advantage over comparable solutions. “The certification of GLASGLOBAL© was carried out according to extremely strict rules, whereby the software was tested both with regard to normative specifications and special requirements,” emphasizes Dipl.-Inf. Robert Sommer, managing director and company founder of Sommer Informatik GmbH.
Users can thus be absolutely sure that the GLASGLOBAL© solution works precisely with regard to its intended use and that it fully conforms to the specifications to be fulfilled.
The fast FEM calculator core of GLASGLOBAL© enables the exact calculation of a wide variety of glazing. The load assumptions according to DIN EN 1991-1 are stored in the program – this enables intuitive and simple operation of the software.
The professional statics software
has all necessary calculation methods and load assumptions. With GLASGLOBAL© glass can be statically dimensioned according to DIN 18008, whereby all loads to be considered such as snow, wind, dead weight, traffic loads or climate-related fluctuations in air pressure and temperature are checked in the calculation. Stress and deflection are also compared with the permissible values and displayed in a clear printout.
In addition to the basic software module, extensions, e.g. for point-fixed glass, for membrane tension and for the shear bond of laminated safety glass, ensure comprehensive coverage of the professional range of applications in the field of glass construction statics.
