Paper Abstract

Evacuated glazing consists of two plane sheets of glass, joined together around the edges, with the internal volume evacuated. An array of support pillars maintains the separation of the sheets against atmospheric pressure forces. The design of evacuated glazing involves trade- offs between heat transport through the pillars, and mechanical stresses. The state-of-the-art of the design and construction of evacuated glazing is reviewed.
