Worked example
Non-composite
1)
Assess the
resistance of
a
glass
section
column made of bundled tubes,
supporting a roof, as shown in the
figure. Tubes are attached together
by the use of adhesive which
enables them to work as:
a) Section A - A
Accidental situation
a)
a single composite section;
b)
a non-composite section.

b) Section A - A
after failure
d = 135 mm
t = 6 mm
Design value of glass strength:
116,91
184,41
in compression
in tension
f cd = c 2 400 MPa
f td = 50 MPa
67,5
2) Assess the resistance of the same
column with two broken tubes - see
the figure.
