Glass for Structural Design
by Gerhard Sedlacek, Haegh Gulvanessian, Kurt Blank, Wilfried Laufs
Book Description: Glass is increasingly in demand as a building material for quick construction, yet there are still no standard specifications. Therefore, this book covers actual design concepts for various kinds of load-carrying glass elements according to current research results from Germany, while also including the Eurocode concept (EC).
- material properties of glass in structural engineering
- manufacturing processes for different glass elements
- definition of glass strength for floatglass, thermally toughened and fully tempered glass
- classification of loading-types and load-combinations
- new design concepts for glass plates under bending and inplane loading.
The text is backed by numerous figures, tables and practical examples, thus enhancing the practical use of the book.

Glass in Structures: Elements, Concepts, Designs
by Robert Nijsse, Winy Maas
Book Description: One of the most fascinating and sophisticated applications of glass in contemporary architecture is its use as a load-bearing material. Pioneered by Peter Rice and Hugh Dutton for structural glazing of facades, glass as a structural material is now commonly used throughout buildings.

Glass Roofs, Glass Facades, Other Glass Walls, Glass Floors, Glass Beams and, as the utmost point of experiment, Glass Columns are the subjects of the main chapters of the book. The introduction deals with questions of material properties and the central issue of security while the final part, "Beyond Glass", develops an integrative approach to architecture based on the experience of building with glass structures.
