Monograph

Serviceability and post-failure behaviour of laminated glass structural elements

  • Lorenzo Ruggero Piscitelli,

Glass structures are being built ever more frequently all over the world, in a growing architectural trend towards light, transparency and sustainability. The engineering design of laminated glass elements being profoundly influenced by properties of interlayers, this multi-scale research highlights some among the key elements on the hyperelastic and viscoplastic response of such synthetic materials. Results and new discoveries are interpreted to better model and predict the response of laminated glass structures: examples are provided for design applications to post-failure safety assessments, structural design and cold-bending techniques. Still, in a vastly unknown field, a growing market and foggy regulatory framework, many challenges and research opportunities remain to be dealt with.

Lorenzo Ruggero Piscitelli started studying glass structures by the end of the masters degree in civil engineering. With growing interest during PhD studies, he had the opportunity to travel all across Europe to follow the path of architectural glass, a field which still continues to drive most of his life with passion and gratitude.
