Glass is increasingly being used as a structural material in new buildings. The structural envelope may consist either entirely or partially of glass, and this trend to eschew traditional materials such as brick and concrete for steel-framed, glass clad buildings presents inherent problems. A major issue is the performance of glazing during earthquakes and extreme climatic events, such as windstorms and heavy snow loads. This authoritative book reviews the current state-of-the art in glass and glazing technology to resist failure due to these natural events.
