Member Stability Calculation and Analysis of the Unit Glass Curtain Wall
The formula to calculate the stability of the unit glass curtain wall (UGCW) is given on the theory of the structure stability is applied to analyze the whole stability of the frame of the UGCW and the calculation formula is provided. Due to the special structure form of the vertical column of the UGCW the formula is given to calculate the critical moment of the vertical column when torsional and flexural buckling occur, and then, the design basis is provided for reasonable and safe design of the UGCW.
