Fig. (13) Dynamic response of the CW modular unit under the BLAST-150 air pressure (ABAQUS/Explicit), in presence of fully rigid brackets (M01) or VE devices (Table 1). (a) maximum tensile stresses at the centre of the glass panel; (b) maximum stresses in the mullions; (c) relative deflections at the centre of the glass panel; (d) reaction forces at the supports and (e) load-displacement response of the VE devices (0 ≤ t ≤ 0.1s).
