Loadbearing Tests on Bonded Glass Frame Corners

Research output: Contribution to book/conference proceedings/anthology/reportConference contributionContributed


Striving for complete transparency obviously also calls for loadbearing structures to be made from transparent materials such as glass. Besides the customary mechanical connections, structural adhesives are becoming very important as a form of connection ideally suited to glass. For example, individual linear loadbearing elements made from glass can be glued together to form transparent loadbearing frames.
