SI Qualification and Internationalization – PME – Vales

SI Qualification and Internationalization – PME – Vales

Project goals:

This project will allow the characterization of a fastening mechanism that can integrate innovative
facade. The system itself must meet the functional requirements normally
(safety, visual appearance, surface regularity, visual comfort and tactile comfort), but
protect the interior wall against atmospheric aggression and comply with the functional requirements of the walls, in
hygienic and acoustic comfort, durability, safety (stability, safety against
fire, resistance to shocks), watertightness, etc. In order for the system to meet all requirements
functional requirements and regulatory requirements is fundamental that it has certain characteristics as well as
defined. It is intended that the fixation mechanism, the main study object of the project, will contribute decisively
for the success of the façade system, and appropriate physical, especially mechanical behavior must be ensured.
The evaluation of the behavior of the mechanism must be done, first, through modeling, which will allow
parametric studies of the influence of certain variables on their performance. Subsequently, after
the numerical study, it will be possible to obtain a selection of the most adequate solutions to the predefined
to optimize the system. Finally, the construction of prototypes will allow the evaluation, in the laboratory and in
situ, of the behavior of the solutions.
In order to respond to the problem identified above, in line with the quality policy and commercial strategy
of the company, which goes through the highly leveraged growth in the exportation of excellence in product and
services, this application identifies the need for the contracting of consultancy services with the objective of
study the fixing mechanisms, which implies the following tasks:
– Involvement in the final design and application of the fastening mechanism – definition of the components
of the fastening interface (for example fastening components, thermal cutting element, fastening forms
wall installation), the mechanisms and methodology for the installation of glass, the geometric, mechanical and
materials used in the fastening interface, taking into account the constraints resulting from the specificity of the
other components, namely photovoltaic glass (its own weight and thickness) and thermal insulation
used on the wall.
– Simultaneous with the tasks of the previous point it is expected to model the mechanical behavior of the mechanism in
numerical terms using appropriate software (finite element method). In thermal terms, in order to
mitigation of the point-to-point thermal effect that the mechanism can create, a numerical evaluation of its performance is
thermal.
– Carrying out a laboratory campaign of mechanical characterization and optimization of the fixation mechanism – in function
of the results obtained previously, the process of characterization of the fixation system may be a
iterative, since it is intended to make the necessary adjustments to optimize the performance of the solution. Contemplate
the performance of physical and mechanical tests, such as tensile, shear,
of the modulus of elasticity of the materials and of measuring the value of the thermal conductivity of the cutting element
thermal; durability tests, such as resistance to ice-defrosting actions, dimensional stability under conditions
temperature, humidity, resistance to moisture by continuous condensation and
subject to saline fog. All tests involve the identification of the test standards in force or definition and
implementation of internal procedures. This laboratory campaign will depend on adequate laboratory facilities
and the involvement of qualified technicians.
– Identification of the applicable certification procedures;
– Identification of the essential characteristics required for certification.
– It is also planned to evaluate the fastening mechanism properly applied on a support and to fix a glass so that
if its behavior, as a complete system, is predicted to be subject to actions such as wind and impact. In this case
the following tests may be carried out:
Determination of wind resistance: EN 12179: 2000 (test method), EN 13116: 2011
performance);
o Determination of impact strength: EN 14019 (behavior requirements);
o Determination and classification of air permeability: EN 12153: 2000 (test method) and EN 12152: 2002
(classification and performance requirements);
o Determination of water tightness: EN 12155: 2000 (laboratory test under static pressure), EN 13050: 2011
(laboratory test under dynamic air pressure and water projection), EN 12154: 2000 (requirements and classification); o In the complete system, it is still possible to determine the coefficient of thermal transmission: ISO
