Σύνοψη του βιβλίου "Structural Glass Facades and Enclosures"

A structural glass facade is a glass wall in which the glass itself is part of the building structure. The fundamental technology of structural facade systems has undergone a transition over the past decade from an emergent, experimental building form to a mature, fully robust technology. Structural Glass Facades and Enclosures documents, defines, and categorizes the current state of the art in long-span glass facade design and construction, with a focus on structural systems, glass cladding options, and implementation strategies for innovative design. A comparative analysis of these various systems is included, along with designs and design practices for enhancing transparency; engineering issues; material , process and fabrication considerations; installation means and methods; and project delivery strategies for implementing innovative building technology in today's construction marketplace. The reader will find information here that is not available together in any single resource.
