The successful design of glass as a structural element depends mainly on the ability to predict failure with accuracy and ease. Over the last 30 years various failure prediction models have been put forward for determining the load bearing capacity of glass, some of which have been adopted in national codes of practice. The differences between these models translate into a wide range of glass strength and glass thickness values in glass design. This paper compares the mathematical formulations… CONTINUE READING
