Buckling failure is a common condition of collapse for structural glass elements typically characterized by high slenderness ratios. Due to a combination of multiple mechanical and geometrical aspects, the effective buckling resistance of glass load-carrying elements is complex to predict, especially in presence of laminated cross sections or interacting applied loads. In this work, buckling experiments are performed on laminated glass beam-columns having rectangular cross section and subjected to combined uniaxial compression and bending. Extended numerical and analytical comparisons with test results are performed. As shown, a general good agreement is found between experimental results and existing prediction models.

Abstract

Buckling failure is a common condition of collapse for structural glass elements typically characterized by high slenderness ratios. Due to a combination of multiple mechanical and geometrical aspects, the effective buckling resistance of glass load-carrying elements is complex to predict, especially in presence of laminated cross sections or interacting applied loads. In this work, buckling experiments are performed on laminated glass beam-columns having rectangular cross section and subjected to combined uniaxial compression and bending. Extended numerical and analytical comparisons with test results are performed. As shown, a general good agreement is found between experimental results and existing prediction models.
