Module: Pendulum impact
For a fall protection glazing is not only the area load and the line load important for the calculation but rather the dynamic load of the pendulum impact. Beside the glazings with proven impact resistance according to table B.1 in the DIN and the TRAV which are implemented in the Module “Line load”, is it possible now to calculate glazings which are deviating form the sizes and the thicknesses in this table. With this an expensive physical assessment will be inapplicable.
This easy calculation method of pendulum impact is based on the rules of the DIN 18008-4, Appendix C.1 and C.2. It can only be used for calculations according to DIN and assumed the module “Linear loads” within the GLASTIK Standard 5.0 software.
