Research

The topics that are addressed within the research group range from material investigations, via investigations into new connection technologies to the development and assembly of full scale glass structures.
Several topics are currently under investigation, such as:

  • Strength of structural glass components
  • Innovative facade constructions by means of cast glass bricks
  • Innovative bridge design making use of dry assembled glass bricks
  • Production and residual stress investigations for glass bricks
  • Safety performance of structural glass components
  • Reinforcement technologies for optimized safety performance
  • New glass material compositions
  • and several other topics
