Abstract

Steel-glass beams consisting of steel flanges and a glass web connected by bonding represent a new kind of transparent structural members. This paper deals with the particular structural behaviour of flexible composed hybrid beams regarding specific material characteristics of steel, glass and particularly adhesive, which is decisive for structural behaviour.
