This court cases quantity of the not easy Glass four & fee motion TU0905 ultimate convention, held 6-7 February 2014 on the EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, represents the ultimate motion ebook of the ecu study community fee motion TU0905 “Structural Glass – Novel layout tools and subsequent iteration products”. It includes approximately a hundred peer-reviewed papers – released by means of greater than one hundred eighty authors from 22 various international locations – that concentrate on the architectural and structural purposes of glass in constructions and facades. As such, it presents a profound state of the art of structural glass layout and engineering. A must-read for all architects, engineers, scientists, companions and different fans drawn to this swiftly evolving and tough area.

1 Meetings A key objective of the Action is to create a scientific network. Obviously, the best way to do so is to bring people physically together to discuss research topics of common interest. Consequently, numerous meetings have been organized at different levels of the Action. In detail, these levels are related to the Core Group (CG), Management Committee (MC), Working Groups (WG), and Task Groups (TG). An overview of meetings organized during the Action is listed in Table 1. A group picture of the MC/WG/TG meeting in Rome, representing about half of the total members of the Action, is given in Figure 1.
5 CONTRIBUTION OF WG4 4 TO THE EDUCATION PACK & TRAINING SCHOOLS Working Group 2 has actively contributed to the realization of the Educational Pack (EduPack), which has been defined as one of the objectives of the COST Action TU0905. More specifically, PowerPoint slides have been prepared by the members of the Task Groups thereby focusing on their specific expertise. The EduPack provides an extensive knowledge base on several topics within Structural Glass engineering. The EduPack can be used by the members of the COST Action TU0905 within the curricular programs at their University.
Noteworthy are the Challenging Glass 3 Conference in Delft (organised by Dr F. Bos, Dr C. Louter, Dr F. Veer and Prof. R.
