Windshields are made using laminated glass. They are created of 3 layers, two outer layers of composite glass and an inner laminate layer.

Theoretical Question About Aerodynamics And Passenger Trains....?
Could The Wind Resistance On High-Speed Trains Could Be Reduced To Almost Zero By Having A Separate &Quot;Windshield Car&Quot; That Was Essentially An Enormous Windshield Powered By Its Own Engine And Not Connected To The Lead Engine Of The Train? I'M Sure There'S Some Reason This Can'T Work, But I Can'T Think Of Why Not!
Windshield car is a stupid and impractical idea. Any body moving in air experiences drag, the resistance to movement by air. This can be reduced considerably through proper aerodynamic shaping of the nose, like in air crafts and race cars, but NOT eliminated.The first bogie of the train ( or the engine ) suffers this drag and the rest follow. The aerodynamic shape hols good for one speed only. For higher or lower speeds the drag is higher. Here the air crafts are better placed since they move at constant speed for most of the time. The trains move at varying speeds and hence can not be given a nose with a fixed configuration.
Why don't you imagine that a portion of the hp of the engine which helps to overcome drag as the separate engine and the lead bogie as the ' wind shield car ' of your dreams?

How Can I Replace Glass Pane In An Alum Window?
I Have A Cb House Built In 77, Alum Single Hung Windows. In A Fit Of Stupidity I Broke On Of The Glass Panes. Any Idea/Website/Pics Of How To Replace It. I Know Where To Get The Glass And Have Quite A Few Tools (Loads Of Car Stuff And A Bit Of Household/Contractor Stuff). Any Help Greatly Appreciated.
you should have glazing bead ( either plastic or aluminum) around the edge of the frame. between the glass and the metal. you can slip a putty knife between the plastic and the frame and pull it towards the inside of the glass. usually its "locked" into place. after pulling it away from the metal edge, you can slip your putty knife between the plastic & the glass and pull away from the window. if noone is there to help you, leave the top strip in so you can work on the other side. if they are aluminum strips holding the glass in, be VERY careful, as these are almost impossible to replace. measure your glass thats left in the opening before removing it. the old piece ( or what's left of it) is the best size you can use to order your new piece. call your local glass shop and ask for "single strength" glass. usually about 1/16" thick. after you pick up your glass and get home, then proceed to finish taking out your new piece.
you need to slip your putty knife between the old piece of glass and the window frame, on the opposite side of where you took off the glazing bead. there should have been silicone or some other sealant holding the glass in place. u need to cut that loose. you can sometimes wiggle the broken shards out pretty easily, depending on how long they've been in there. after taking out the glass, run your putty knife along the entire frame removing any shards left. wipe with a papertowel to clean completely. ( u can break the new piece with tiny pieces of the old one)
after cleaning the sash, u should use clear silicone on the frame. run a small bead all the way around where your glass will rest. place the new piece in the opening and replace the glazing bead. if you break any of the stops(glazing bead) u can usually purchase it at any glass shop. they'll get as close as they can. if they dont carry it, then silicone around the edge on both sides and it shouldnt leak.
and go slow............ can get painful if not careful
if you dont have plastic or metal stops, youll have to putty glaze it. email me for instructions if you need them. :)

Call around to repair shops, but beware. You get what you pay for. You need someone who has experience or you will end up with either (a) a broken replacement or (b) a replacement that leaks around the seal.
