Glass is a material with high potentiality in a structural application. Brittleness has always been challenging for glass structure. Recyclability is also challenging for the current glass application since the chemical bonding is contaminating the recipe. Interlocking cast glass construction offers an interesting bypass to solve these two...

This research investigates the potential of 3D printed sand moulds for casting structural glass column having optimised cross section. Conventionally, Glass, in architectural industry, has been used in form of sheets (Float glass) due to ease of fabrication of planar sheets, but in last few years, cast glass bricks have been used for creating...

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...

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...

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...

A novel, reversible structural system comprising interlocking, dry-assembled cast glass components is currently being developed at the TU Delft Glass &amp; Transparency Lab. This paper, in continuation of the research conducted by (Oikonomopoulou et al. 2018a), investigates the mechanical properties of different materials that function as dry...

The success of projects such as the Crystal Houses façade in Amsterdam has triggered an increasing interest from architects, engineers and glass producers in the development and application of structural cast glass components. This interest raises, simultaneously, the needs for a controlled manufacturing process, a system for quality control and...

Although in theory glass can be endlessly re-melted without loss in quality, in practice only a small percentage gets recycled, mainly by the packaging industry. Most of the discarded glass fails to pass the high quality standards of the prevailing glass industry – due to coatings, adhesives, other contaminants or incompatibility of the recipe –...

This paper explores the potential of a novel, reversible all-glass system consisting of dryassembly, interlocking cast glass components. Owing to its interlocking geometry, the proposed system can attain the desired stiffness with the aid of minimal, if any, metal framing. The use of adhesives is circumvented in the system by employing a dry,...

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...

Cast glass components are a promising solution for engineering pure glass structures of high transparency and load-carrying capacity due to their large cross-sectional area and monolithic nature. Currently, the few realized structures employing cast glass components rely either on a steel substructure or on an adhesive of high bonding strength...

Not many glass columns exists in the world, and especially used for buildings. Safety and mass manufacturing is a problem. How can you make sure that a glass column is safe even enough for the public and in what way can it been manufactured? These are two of the seven problems I am faced with during my research. The purpose of this thesis is to...

The search for a transparent, reversible, and reusable consolidation system for monuments led to the ambition to test possible cast glass interlocking brick designs using numerical calculations. The focus of this research is hence the design, simulation and evaluation of a possible cast glass interlocking geometry using Finite Element Analysis ...

A novel glass brick façade has been designed and engineered to reproduce the original brick façade of a former townhouse in Amsterdam. Based on the original design the resulting façade comprises more than 6500 solid glass bricks, reinterpreting the traditional brick pattern, and elaborated cast glass elements for the replication of the window...
