"Folded plate structures made of glass laminates: a proposal for the structural assessment";
Glass Structures & Engineering, 1 (2016), 2; 451 - 460.

English abstract:
This paper presents a possible approach for the assessment of folded plate structures made of glass laminates using a new connection detail. Following a brief introduction and discussion of the experimen- tal connection detail, the results of conducted test- ing are summarized. An extensive numerical inves- tigation using ANSYS is performed. Findings from these numerical investigations of the connection detail, namely a proposed load interaction and the influence of the kink angle on the utilization will be touched on. A simplified modelling procedure for the assessment of a structural system is presented and its results are discussed for a selected configuration. It is shown that the new connection detail is feasible for folded plate structures spanning up to 15m. The paper concludes with proposing further research and an outlook.
