  • Abstract The safety verification of glass structures is usually made on the basis of a deterministic approach, without assessing the underlying probability of collapse. In this article, we propose to use the semi- probabilistic method in the limit-state design of glass structures by presenting properly-calibrated values of the partial safety factors of material strength, so as to obtain a probability of failure compatible with the target values indicated for each class of consequence by… CONTINUE READING
