Fig. (17) Dynamic response of the CW modular unit under the BLAST-25 air pressure (ABAQUS/Explicit), in presence of fully rigid brackets (M01), VE-01 devices (Table 1) or PL-01 dampers (Table 2). (a) Maximum tensile stresses at the centre of the glass panel; (b) maximum stresses in the mullions (0 ≤ t ≤ 0.1s).
