Original Abstract

The paper presents the information about several problems of the behavior and analysis of load-carrying structural members composed of structural glass. On authors workplace the attention is paid to the problems of limit states of various members of load-carrying glass structures in the last period. The analysis is directed towards the experimental verification of the actual behavior and objective resistance of glass structural members in connection with the theoretical analysis based on the numerical and analytical models. In the period of about two last decades, the series of loading tests of diverse glass structural members have been performed, usually based on the requirements of companies producing glass components for load-carrying structures. Most of those tested structural components were the plane members (panels) for the façade claddings. Other types of tested structural members were glass panels for the shelter structure of the bus station platform in several variants of glass type or glass structure of the aquarium in ZOO exposure. In parallel with experimental verification also the theoretical analysis of investigated structural members is performed. Within the framework of the theoretical analysis following methods have been used: methods based on the evaluation and possible generalization of test results; methods based on FEM approach for numerical modeling and subsequent verification and calibration using test results. Arising from the experimental and theoretical analysis, the configuration and detailing of glass structural members mentioned above has been verified and modified for the subsequent application in the realized load-carrying civil constructions.
