Abstract

Due to the intensive progress and research on the field of glass structures, possibilities for using glass as a load carrying elements are increasing every day. Different types of hybrid constructions, consisting of glass and another material, are analyzed or even newly developed focusing on an optimal structural interaction between both materials and in respect to architectural, static-structural and fabrication criteria. Glued joint, realized by polymer adhesive is very often the key element of whole composite structure, therefore also the key aspect of research, development and numerical modeling. This paper deals with the research pointed on the description of different adhesive behaviour under increasing load, ultimate carrying capacity of the area glued joints according to the thickness of the adhesive layer and working FE models of polymer adhesives, transferred from industry to glass construction design (epoxies, acrylics, polyurethanes, silicones).
