Glass is a ubiquitous material in buildings and the architectural trends for large area glazing and for ‘structural glass’ applications is driving the growth in this sector. However, the process of quantifying and mitigating the risk of human injury from glass related injuries, particularly from extreme loading events, presents major challenges for the building industry. The seminar will illustrate the limitations of industry-standard methodologies and will describe how the recent advances in experimental and computational techniques may be lead to an improved post-fracture assessment.
