Abstract

Due to their increasing use in contemporary architecture, the lateral torsional buckling performance of laminated structural glass beams represents a topic of great interest for researchers. Although several analytical models and design approaches have been recently proposed, various aspects complicate the realistic prediction of this phenomenon. Based on experimental results of a large campaign of lateral torsional buckling tests (55 laminated beams), the paper investigates analytically the effects of various mechanical (e.g. the stiffness of interlayer) and geometrical properties (e.g. initial twist, production tolerances) on the typical lateral torsional buckling response of laminated glass beams.
