Abstract
Building large-sized glazing into timber walls has significantly grown over the last years, however when combined, the structural behaviour of both elements can be rather complicated. This is one of the major reasons for this investigation. In order to design energy-efficient timber-frame buildings with enlarged fixed glazing, it is of primary...

Abstract
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...

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...

Abstract
The architectural need for more transparent building envelopes not only changed the appearance of the buildings, but also their structural behaviour. Walls do not only have a vertical load-bearing function any more, they are also used for the transfer of wind and earthquake induced loads. Structural sealant glazing structures have been used for...
