Point supported glass

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

I have a project that has “floating” glass balusters. I know how to calculate the bending and deflection, that is not the issue.  What I’m trying to find is information on how to deal with the localized stresses due to the point supports.


Is almost exactly the system I’m working with.


Does anyone have any good references for this type of system? Maybe a go-by even?
