fracture analysis of a swimming pool glass wall

fracture analysis of a swimming pool glass wall and design of a new, fulfilling glass package for the existing situation

A swimming pool (50 m³) glass wall suddenly fractured. Vitroplena was contacted to analyse the problem and quickly come up with a solution. After identifying the fracture pattern and numerically analyzing the glass wall, a new glass package was designed for the existing situation and the wall was replaced in due time.
