Failure Prediction Model for Structural Glass Design


While structural and architectural glass is ubiquitous in modern buildings, its design remains an enigma to many engineers due at least three factors: 1) the lack of a comprehensive design code 2) the need to design for probabilistic failure instead of allowable or ultimate stresses and 3) the relatively complex modeling needed to capture stresses throughout a member. This presentation will explain the content, context and assumptions of ASTM E1300 and provide some basic examples of design application.
