Glass structures – learning from experts

Abstract
Despite the increasing research activity on structural use of glass in the past years, there is still a lack of comprehensive design codes and standards linked to real-life applications on a structural level. However, more and more ambitious buildings and structures are built every year. Thus the knowledge is out there. The aim of the presented project is to collect data on the existing design philosophy and glass failure cases. The investigation includes a survey about how practicing structural engineers deal with different design aspects of glass with a special focus on robustness and serviceability. The current document gives a brief overview about the findings of the interviews
