Articles

For years and years research, development and discussions have been made on the safety of glass structures.
For nearly 50 years, glass has been used as structural elements in glass fin applications. These applications include interior and exterior projects, supporting facades, canopies, storefronts, curtain walls and skylights.
Post breakage strength of glass is still an unknown area as analytical models for this are inconclusive so far and thus destructive testing is the only reliable solution.
This article is dedicated to dynamic glazing in the façade. This is an update of the articles on smart products in the façade I and II published in March 2019 and May 2020.
Connecting glass with heat bonds is a way to create all-transparent glass structures. Two methods have been researched in theory and practice, glass welding, through local heating, and glass fusion through global heating.
This research investigates the potential of glass as a new design tool to highlight and safeguard our historic structures.
This paper focuses on the geometric optimization of the free-form gridshell towards planar quad glass units.
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.
In this work, a combined Voronoi and finite-discrete element method (FDEM) approach for reconstructing the post-fracture model of laminated glass (LG) was proposed.
The study describes the results of the principal applicability of fiber optic strain sensors to evaluate the structural behaviour of laminated glass and provides the basis to define a model for the material characteristics of viscoelastic interlayers.
