Historical monuments are one of the best-preserved memories of our past as human species. Despite this, the conservation of these monuments is slowly being put under pressure by rapid economic development and the desire to make as much profit as possible. This development has raised awareness through the world of conservation about the...

This thesis is about reconstructing historical vaults with cast glass. The vision is to design a complete dry-assembly cast glass arch vault where the Notre Dame de Paris is the chosen case study. The main question is: To what extent can a historical masonry arch vault be reconstructed by using cast glass components? The method is based on...

The current research investigates potential interlayer materials candidates, for an interlocking cast glass block assembly. Various alternative interlayers are examined, as well as the effect their unique material properties have on the potential application of the interlocking system. The whole process, from fabrication to construction of the...

Cast glass is a promising structural material that has seen increasing use in the build environment over the last year. It offers a great freedom of shape for designers and engineers, beyond the two-dimensional float glass that is still primarily used. Despite this, cast glass in practice has only been used for solid bricks, mimicking...

Glass is a material that has a high compressive strength and a low tensile strength. While being mostly produced as flat sheets of float glass, it can also be casted into components that have a thicker geometry and thus a higher buckling resistance. These properties make cast glass components suitable for the construction of shell structures...

Structures made from cast glass components are transparent and make full use of the high compressive strength of glass. As they have more freedom in shapes and can therefore be designed with a large cross-section, it is more suitable as a<br/>structural element than fl oat glass. However, most cast glass structures that have been completed...

Currently, tons of high-quality borosilicate glass are discarded to landfills each year, taking up space on valuable land. Within the existing soda-lime glass recycling industry it is not possible to use recycled borosilicate glass due to its higher melting temperatures and a difference in chemical composition. In fact, borosilicate glass...

Glass is a fascinating material with very interesting properties and high durability, while cast glass in particular has a lot of unmapped potential. It is also an environmentally friendly option that can be fully recycled or even better reused if not contaminated with other substances. The current thesis is exploring a dry-connection building...

Szabó, Ákos (author)
Glass is one of the most remarkable building material in modern architecture. It has become more and more valued as a major construction material. It does not only provide continuous transparency but it can be applied as a main structural element due to its high load-bearing capacity. The structural system has already been realized in several...

In 1942 cast glass columns weredesigned in the Danteum by GiuseppeTerragni. But due to the annealing timeof large glass pieces, these have neverbeen produced. Now, more than 75years later, a new type of cast glasscolumn will be designed. This time, thedesign is made out of interlocking drystacked cast glass components.Glass is a strong yet...

Glass is a versatile material applied in a large number of industries. It can for example be found in everyday household items, inside high tech machines or it can be used as part of mechanical structures in buildings. This research focuses on using structural cast glass components for a dome design forming a sustainable living habitat for Lori...
