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,...

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...

This paper investigates the application of structural glass in restoration and conservation practices in order to highlight and safeguard our built heritage. Cast glass masonry is introduced in order to consolidate a half-ruined historic tower in Greece, by replacing the original parts of the façade that are missing. Dry connections between the...

A new and symmetrical single layer armour unit, the crablock, has been designed in the UAE. One breakwater was reconstructed with crablock, but very limited testing had been performed. Just to become more acquainted with this new unit, pre-competitive research at a university has been performed, which is the subject of this paper. Being a new...

Revetments protect the shorelines of coasts, estuaries and rivers against wind wave, ship wave, current and ice attack. The resistance of revetments essentially depends on the properties of the cover layer. The resistance of interlocked pattern placed revetments depends on the weight of the individual stones and the interlocking. Extensive large...

Während des Versuchszeitraums wurden vier verschiedene Modellphasen durchgeführt. Die Modellphasen 1 bis 3 variiteren nur bezüglich der zum Einsatz kommenden Verkalit-Deckwerksteine. Der unterliegende Deckwerksaufbau hingegen stellte mit der Schichtenabfolge Sand, Kornfilter, Geotextil einen nach den Regeln der Technik anerkannten...

In the present paper the results of an exploratory study with the recently developed biaxial tension/shear apparatus of the Stevin Laboratory of Delft University of Technology are presented. The apparatus is unique in the sense that square double-edgenotched concrete plates up to a size of 200 x 200 mm can be loaded in any combination of tension...
