I am preparing all structural analytics of aluminium-, steel- or timber-construction according European standards and current technical approvals. Complex systems and geometries I am doing with FEM-analysis.
Glass calculations are made according DIN 18008, EN 16612 and current technical approvals. All geometries and glass build up are possible, even curved glass. I could check every support from a four sided fixed glazing to point fixed glazing.
For all general coatings I could do a thermal stress analysis according DTU39 at every location to avoid thermal cracks at the glazing.
I could help you at the development of facade profiles and provide you the test method statement sequence B according CWCT for testing your new system and getting an approval. Of course I would do a monitoring on site of the test sequence.
I am a civil engineer specializing in curtain walling of aluminium, steel or timber construction. I offer a full design service, starting at concept stage, leading on through detail design development, oversight of manufacture, installation of facade system and concluding with project handover.
This process can start as early as the initial concept design, working closley with the Architect to help in determining the optimum facade solution for their project. Proceeding then to structural and thermal analyze the proposed system and carry out a a thermal stress analysis of the various glass options to ensure that the client arrives at the optimum solution for their building from both a performance and cost point of view.
