Glued glass fronts are extensively applied and meet the highest standards. The objective of several research projects was the development of stiffening glass fronts to replace expansive frameworks or wind bracings. Furthermore, the use of timber-glass composite (TGC) beams was investigated. Within the research project "Load Bearing TimberGlass Composite Structures” (LBTGC) within the framework WoodWisdom-Net the short-term behavior of TGC-beams was investigated. Therefore, the Department of Structural Design and Timber Engineering (ITI) developed a beam-setup to test the load-bearing capacity of such elements under a four point bending test. Two different adhesives, silicone and epoxy, were used to connect timber and glass. The two adhesives vary in their strength and their stiffness. This has an immense influence on the behavior of the beams. This paper illustrates the results of various applications.
