Thick Embedded Connections For Laminated Glass Structures

Laminated and hybrid glass systems are most typically made by bonding or joining together several structural components and materials. Their structural performance and safe design are, hence, related to the optimal combination of several parameters, including material properties and degradation, geometrical ratios, connections' type and features, etc. Given the typical brittleness of glass as structural material, as well as its increasing use in building components for load-bearing assemblies, research studies aimed to ensure appropriate safety levels as well as to...
