| Color Depth is a material-based research project investigating the optical and structural properties of thick glass.
| In the structural design of facade glazing, various types of loads such as dead weight, wind and climatic loads must be taken into account. In practice, however, there are many cases of damage that can be attributed to direct solar radiation.
| The main challenge in the design of the duplex façade was the high aesthetical performance that the façade had to meet.
Investigations on the Cold Bending Behaviour of a Double Glazing Unit with a Rigid Edge-Spacer Frame
| In this study, the bending process of specially-fabricated double glazing units (‘panels’) is investigated with a focus on a local instability phenomenon.
| As a contribution to assessing the feasibility of strengthening glass elements with adhesively bonded Fe-SMA strips, this paper focuses on the bond behavior of glass-to-Fe-SMA lap-shear joints based on numerical investigations.
| In recent years, there has been a significant progress demonstrated in both the R&D and industrialisation of novel BIPV products, materials, and also the window-integrated PV (WIPV) solar window systems.
| In this paper, we present the development of an intrinsic parameter σQM characterizing the sensitivity of a coating (or configuration) to the quench marks.

| The paper undertakes a review of basic interlayer stack data with regards to viscoelastic properties and adhesion, and the engineering hypotheses using recent preliminary fitting test results for various loading schemes.
| This paper sheds some light on the challenges to build with high performing glazing façade systems (originally called curtain wall systems) while efficiently utilising resources and reducing its manufacturing embodied carbon.
| This research revolves around the design, fabrication and testing of tubular glass columns, with particular focus on their redundancy and fire-safety mechanisms.
| This paper gives an overview of the requirements of a ship structure, and more specifically yacht structures, and describes the challenges associated with using glass as a fully integrated structural component.
| This study provides a closer look at fire performance of glass beams and proposes further examinations to increase the load-bearing capacity in case of fire.
