Does anybody know any standards or code for structural glass design?

RE: glass design

IBC 2003 (International Building Code)- Chap 24.  I believe it incorporates aspects of ASTM E1300 (Standard practice for determining load resistance of glass in buildings).


RE: glass design

Try the "Glass engineering" forum also.  

RE: glass design

The Institution of Structural Engineers (London) has a publication "Structural use of glass in buildings" 1999. This has references to international standards from UK, The Netherlands, Australia, USA, and Canada (including ASTM E1300 as noted above).

RE: glass design

ASTM E1300 covers this design, as mentioned by zcp.  There is software available which incorporates this code at www.mecaenterprises.com\glasspro.htm .

RE: glass design

This site offers glass software. I do not use it. However, I use their wind load software and I find it very easy to use and the output is great.
