Description: This lecture gives teachers and students grounding in the development of satisfactory and suitable window design in aluminium; it helps them acquire an understanding of the principles underlying good design. Students need to be able to design aluminium windows which conform to local planning regulations and which are suitable for national traditions in each market they are offered in. This involves the acquisition of local climatic data since the products need to withstand the climatic conditions pertaining in the different marketing zones. Products need to be of a design acceptable to architects and must also fulfil the requirements of the market. Basic design engineering background, basic knowledge of corrosion effects, and some familiarity with TALAT lecture series 2100, 2200 and 5104 is assumed.
