The investigation of new glass compositions is crucial to expand the possible applications of glass, from the typical applications for building engineering, in the form of cast blocks or floated glass, to more advanced technologies, such as 3D-printed glass or glass to metal connections. Despite the intense research activity and new glass...

Over the last decades, the perception of glass in the engineering world has changed from that of a brittle, fragile material to a reliable structural component of high compressive load-bearing capacity. Although the structural applications of glass in architecture are continuously increasing, they are dominated by a considerable geometrical...

It is hard to imagine a world without bridges. Bridges lie at the heart of our civilization bringing growth and prosperity to our society. It is by virtue of bridges that communities are able to physically connect to new people and to new places that were previously disconnected. However, bridges are more than mere functional assets. A well...

The use of outriggers in tall buildings is a common practice to reduce response under dynamic loading. Viscous dampers have been implemented between the outrigger and the perimeter columns, to reduce vibrations produced by strong winds. However, its behaviour under strong earthquakes has been not yet properly investigated. Strong earthquakes...

This thesis analysis the structural design of cilindrical Fusee Ceramique roofs and the effect of the ceramique infill elements for the time dependent deformations, stiffness and load bearing capacity, including second order. To save the few remaining buildings for the coming generations the possibilities to strengthen and stiffen these...
