Timber-structural glass composite systems in earthquake environment

Mislav Stepinac, Vlatka Rajčić, Roko Žarnić

Abstract

Structural glass combined with a timber frame is a composite system that has a predisposition for good behavior during an earthquake, it is energy-efficient and cost-effective, aesthetically acceptable and has a good load-bearing characteristics. In recent years, several research projects of composite systems timber - structural glass are in progress and according to the present results basic guidelines for further research can be determined.

Keywords
load-bearing glass, timber – structural glass composite systems, earthquake, Eurocode 5, Eurocode 8
