Research on Load Analysis and Calculation Method of the Unit Glass Curtain Wall
Due to the applicable installation height, small mass, flexible characteristic, large span, so the unit glass curtain wall (UGCW) could be differ from the glass curtain wall of frame members. Based on the characteristic of UGCW, analysis the load of UGCW and building the formula of static wind load, Earthquake Action, Temperature Function etc. The formula to calculate the load of the unit glass curtain wall (UGCW) is given on the base of analyzing the acting load and the mechanism of force transfer of the UGCW in service condition. Hope to provide some reference for similar designs.
