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.
