Abstract

Glass is being increasingly used as a structural material. Its favorable aesthetic qualities have made it popular with modern designers. Recently glass is used for major structural elements such as beams and columns in modern and innovative architectural applications. High slenderness ratios and brittle behavior in tension contribute to the complexity of stability and ultimate strength analysis of glass structures. Moreover the available design curves and methods of ultimate strength analysis of glass structure contain epistemic uncertainty, therefore are not reliable. In this study, based on logical reasoning, concise mathematics and reliable data, a reliable method called the change of state philosophy is developed and expressed in the Persian curve. The Persian curve is used for reliable analysis of glass structures. The validity of the work is verified via its sound basic formulation and comparison of the results with those of the others in the literature.
