  • Thermal fracture of glass Insulating glass units
  • Actions on glass structures
  • Thermal tempering of glass
  • Glass strength and aging of glass
  • Laminated glass & Interlayer properties
  • Numerical modeling & experimental validation
  • Structural glass design philosophy
  • Glass failure analysis
  • Structural glass connections
  • Architectural geometries with glass
  • Stability of glass components
  • Hybrid glass components
