Abstract

Structures of glazed facades and roofs are composed of many components like load-bearing beam or struss structures, aluminium profile systems, light transparent glass or plastic covering-plates and sealings. In this report the design principles for the load-bearing capacity of aluminium profiles, glass and plastic covering-plates and elements and sealings are first reviewed. Then experimental results for the stiffness and strength of the joints between the steel and aluminium components are presented and the performance of the joints are evaluated in cases when aluminium profiles are used as stabilizing structures or composite members together with the steel structure. During the research project a glass structure of dimensions 2 450 x 2 450 mm was tested using various temperatures and pressures in laboratory conditions. The tests produced new results about the displacements in the different joints in the structure. Such displacements are repeated thousands of times during the life-time of a structure and have effects on its mechanical behaviour as well as its air- and the water-tightness. The results are used in developing calculation and evaluation models for glazed structures. The last part of the report presents an evaluation method, which was developed for the design and manufacturing stages. In the method  More>>

In the method first requirements are given for all the important properties of the structure. The fulfilment of these requirements during the manufacturing process is followed with calculations, tests and other standardized or non-standardized assessment methods.}
