Structural Glass Design, Based on ASTM E1300 & CAN/CGSB-12.20, using Finite Element Method

INPUT DATA & DESIGN SUMMARY


GLASS PANEL SIZE W= 1.5 ft, (457 mm)
L= 5 ft, (1524 mm)

GLASS PANEL THICKNESS t = 0.7874 in, (20 mm)


Weight = 77 lbs, (35 kg)

CONNECTION TYPE ( 0 or 1) 0 , only corner pinned.

ALLOWABLE GLASS STRENGTH sallow = 3.5 ksi, (24 N / mm2)


(Annealed: 3.5 ksi, Heat-strengthened: 6.5 ksi, Tempered: 14.5 ksi - verify reqd.)

ALLOWABLE DEFLECTION L / 240


( The max value suggested: L / 60 for window or curtain wall, L / 180 for stair.)

UNIFORM AREA LOAD (Perpendicular to Plane) D= 10 psf, ASD level


POINT LOAD (Including Impact Factor) P= 0.3 kips, ASD level

THE DESIGN IS ADEQUATE.

ANALYSIS
GLASS PROPERTIES
g= 156 lbs / ft3 (2500 kg / m3)
E= 10150 ksi (70 kN / mm2)
u= 0.22 , Poisson's ratio

JOINT DEFLECTIONS, REACTIONS, & PLATE SECTION FORCES


P= 0.3 kips,( Point load at Joint 9.)

Joint D R Bending M
Number in kips Section ft-k/ft
1 0 -0.09 7-8 0.03
2 0.14 8-9 0.04
3 0.21 3-6 0.42
4 0.00 6-9 0.42
5 0.14
6 0.21
7 0.00
8 0.14
9 0.21

CHECK BENDING CAPACITY


Mn / Wb = sallow d t2/ 6 = 4.34 ft-k/ft > M= 0.42 ft-k/ft
[Satisfactory]
Where d= 12 in, (1 ft)
M = (M6-92 + M8-92 )0.5 = 0.42 ft-k/ft

CHECK DEFLECTION
Dmax = 0.21 in < L / 240 = 0.25 in
[Satisfactory]
Where L = Max (L , W) = 60.0 in
