StarterThe professional statics software according to DIN 18008 contains all the necessary calculations and loads. With GLASGLOBAL®, glasses according to DIN 18008 can be dimensioned statically. All loads to be considered such as snow, wind, dead weight, traffic loads or climatic fluctuations in air pressure and temperature are tested during the calculation.

Stress and deflection are compared with the permitted values and displayed on a clear result expression.

  • Static verification of glazing according to DIN 18008: 2012 Part 1 to 6
  • Large number of pre-installed products such as glasses, point and clamp holders
  • Calculation according to finite element method of any shape and storage of the glazing
  • Maximum values of the deflection and tension of the individual washers for relevant and freely defined load combinations
  • Verification of all load cases (snow, wind, dead weight, traffic loads)
  • Wind and snow loads for Germany according to DIN 1055 with optionally available wind and snow load module for Switzerland

Line-shaped glazed units, which were defined in the TRLV until December 2010, have been found since then in DIN 18008 part 2. For example, the calculation is no longer based on a global safety factor but on partial safety factors. These take into account the uncertainties in the system, the loads and the materials.

The technical rules for the design and implementation of point-mounted glazing (TRPV) for vertical and overhead glazing valid until the end of 2010 were superseded by DIN18008 part 3. The standard distinguishes between two brackets.
