Novel Laminated Connections

As an alternative to standard adhesive connections, the PhD research project ‘Novel Laminated Connections for Structural Glass Applications’, which recently started at the ICOM-EPFL, focuses on the use of polymer foil/interlayer materials to laminate (metal) connections to glass. Two interlayer materials, namely the ionomer SentryGlas (SG) and the structural transparent addition-cured silicon (TSSA) seem good candidates for this lamination connection technique, and are investigated in this research. The research includes experimental and numerical studies, and aims at developing a model for predicting the deformation and failure behaviour of laminated connections.
