UNStudio made a beautiful design for the C&A building with a lots of glass elements to connect with the buildings around.
The Swiss society of engineers and architects (SIA) initiated a structural glass standard committee with the task to develop a Swiss glass design standard.
The present work uses non-linear material laws for FEA and exhibits the behavior of the sealant joint in various load scenarios on several projects.
The present paper presents an ongoing research project considering the failure of glass at high strain-rates. It provides a brief review of existing studies showing a strength increase with loading rates relevant for e.g. blast loads.
