Research has repeatedly pointed out the suitability of adhesive bonding to substitute to “traditional” joining techniques for numerous materials and loads, including timber to glass. Practitioners, however, are still reluctant to implement them into their designs. Adhesion as a method of joining, particularly in the context of hybrid structures, presupposes knowledge of all involved materials, including codes and procedures; most practitioners however tend to be focused on just a subset of… CONTINUE READING
