The structural glass for this globe structure is created with laminated double curved glass panels patch supported by a steel structure.
Tag - Structural Glazing
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.
An Initial Study Towards Optimized Structural Assessment of Glass Components
The aim of the ICSA conferences is to present research and developments on the merging of architecture and structural engineering. The International Conference on Structures and Architecture, organised by the International Association of Structures & Architecture, is the world’s leading and largest global...
Capital C, Geometric Optimization of a Free-Form Steel Gridshell Towards Planar Quadrilateral Glass Units
This paper focuses on the geometric optimization of the free-form gridshell towards planar quad glass units.
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.
Comparative study of laminated glass fins using full-scale testing, finite element modeling, and buckling formulas
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.
Theoretical Study on a Highly Transparent Building Made with Long-Spanned TVT Portals Braced with Hybrid Glass-Steel Panels
I want you to think about your daily journey to work. Take a minute, visualize it – and then answer me this: How many glass surfaces did you see? Too many to remember?
