Thermal Stress Calculator - Pilkington

https://www.pilkington.com/en/us/window-manufacturers/tools-and-calculators/thermal-stress-calculator

Window glass is constantly being heated and cooled by factors such as the sun, wind, and interior HVAC. The small differentials between temperatures at various portions of the glass causes expansion and contraction which, if the stresses are great enough, can lead to breakage in ordinary annealed glass. That's why, in many applications, heat strengthening will be required by local building codes and ordinances.
