Working Group 4

Novel Glass Assemblies
WG 4

Aims & Objectives

This working group is addressing Priority Area 4 ‘Novel Glass Assemblies’ identified by the research network.

Glass is predominantly produced in flat sheets which need to be assembled together to form a structural glass component or a structure. The structural capacity of the existing first generation of structural glass assemblies is, however, limited by the high tensile stresses present around the bolt hole which coincides with the weakest part of the glass. The objectives of Working Group 4 are to unify and advance knowledge on the next generation of efficient glass connections and assemblies. 

Task Groups

Within the working group, 4 themes are addressed and Task Groups have been formed accordingly, which are:
