Abstract

The frequent use of structural glass elements, as well as the lack of extended standardized rules for designers, gradually increased the interesting of scientists and researchers in the analysis of structural behaviours associated to various combinations of boundary and loading conditions. Buckling failure certainly represents one of the most crucial conditions of collapse for structural glass panels. In the paper, the buckling response of simply supported glass panels subjected to combined in-plane compressive and edgewise shearing forces is investigated. Based on large series of numerical incremental simulations, the effects of loading ratios, imperfection shapes, slenderness ratios and glass types on their response are highlighted. At last, a normalized domain is proposed for their stability check.
