Designing Bolt Fixed Laminated Glass with Stress Concentration Factors

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Abstract in Undetermined
general method for determining stress concentration factors for laminated glass balustrades with two plus two bolt fixings with variable positions is developed. It is demonstrated how the stress concentration factors can be presented graphically in design charts and representative charts are displayed for the case of a more specific bolt-fixed balustrade type. In general, the use of simple formulas and design charts allows the maximum principal stresses of the balustrade to be determined for any relevant combination of variable geometry parameters involved.
