Structural Laminated Glazing >>Material Properties >> Engineering Calculations

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Fellow Structural Engineers,

                I have a client who is asking for engineering calculations  using  laminated glass  for stair treads and railings.  The IBC – 2006 would be applicable building code.

                For anyone who has experience with structural glazing >> where can I find the necessary engineering data and the material performance specifications for laminated glass?  I anticipate the glass stair treads would be fabricated from 3 layers of 3/8 inch thick tempered glass >> laminated with a clear plastic film >> creating a composite section.
