In structural glass design, an often-applied connection is a bolted connection subjected to in-plane tensile loads. Traditionally, the hole in the glass pane is manufactured by core drilling and conical edge finishing. An alternative method is by waterjet cutting the holes, resulting in...
Cast glass has great potential for diverse load-bearing, architectural applications; through casting, volumetric glass components can be made that take full advantage of glass’s stated compressive strength. However, the lack of engineering, production and quality control standards for cast glass...
Acrylic glasses, as well as mineral glasses, exhibit a high variability in tensile strength. To cope with this uncertainty factor for the dimensioning of structural parts, modeling of the stress-strain behavior and a proper characterization of the varying fracture stress or strain are required....

The paper presents results of an experimental campaign on reinforced glass beams, that represent a safe solution for the use of glass as a structural material. A new kind of FRP reinforced glass beams, formed by three-layer laminated float glass plies and two FRP bars, is proposed. One bar is...
The effectiveness of post-tensioning in enhancing the fracture resistance of glass beams depends on the level of compressive pre-stress introduced at the glass edge surface that will in service be exposed to tensile stresses induced by bending. Maximum pre-load that can be applied in a...
Composites are being increasingly used for industrial applications and combine the advantageous properties of two or more constituents. The urge to reduce material to a minimum and the trend towards lightweight glass structures require further developments in high performance and fully...
