Abstract: Although the fundamental static loads on glass structures have been addressed, the following three important aspects of loading are not fully understood and are the subject of on-going research. The probabilistic nature of combined actions such as the occurrence of combined wind and barrier loads or wind and temperature gradients shows a lack of knowledge. The internal loads the so called "climatic loads" for insulated glass units, particularly the internal pressures in curved glass units and the load sharing effects between the glass panes are currently content of international research. The time-resolved response of glass due to the dynamic loads caused by wind, blast and earthquake, is a very special issue in the field of structural design of glass. All these aspects are mandatory for an accurate structural analysis of glass elements. This paper gives a short synopsis about these topics.
