Abstract
Glued glass front constructions have long been in use and are generally considered the state of the art. However, with these solutions the glass serves no stiffening or bearing function, but merely functions as an outer cover. The objective of several research projects was to investigate alternative constructions of stiffening glass fronts, which...
