Glass as a Structural Material, Implications for Architectural Freedom and Safe Design  

Damage to glass more often than not occurs due to events other than design loading. The concepts of redundancy, retention and residual capacity will be discussed to increase the safe use of glass by preventing collapse, fall out and continuing to perform vital roles after damage due to non-design events. The recommendations include in-service, partially damaged state and fully fractured state.  

  Richard Green is a Principal and Owner of Green Facades LLC. is a global expert in the area of facades and structural glass and his expertise encompasses all stages of building enclosures life-cycle. Richard's specialty is the design and analysis of the complex façade structures. He has been involved with a number of world leading and award-winning projects covering a wide range of building types. He is the technical chair for the ASTM Structural Glass Committee and has an advisory role to Eurocode EC11.
