Stress-strain state of a glass panel with adhesive point fixings

Building constructions, buildings and structures

The article is devoted to the study on the bearing capacity of the glazing with adhesive point fixings. This article provides evaluation of such factors as applied load, edge distance, panel thickness and number of point fixtures and their influence on stress-strain state of a glazing panel. Calculation of the panels under various conditions was performed by means of Finite Element Method (FEM). Results of the calculation show dependencies between considered factors and stress-strain state of a panel and present an overview of the on the possibilities of usage of such structures in accordance with Ultimate Limit State and Serviceability Limit State.
