Anotace(semestr B232)
The course is intending to introduce the students the field of structural applications of glass and to give them some specific skills for calculation and detailing of for basic glass structures: panes beams and fins, columns and walls, point-supported glass, as well as for glazing systems such as glass facades, canopies and roofs, stairs and floors. On this purpose the properties of glass as structural material will be presented in comparison with other basic building materials, together with selected examples of glass/glazing applications. Design details and connecting technology, relevant technical regulations, specification and current methods applied in design will be described. Worked examples will accompany the lectures for better understanding, and design project will help to fix specific knowledge.
