PROBABILISTIC STUDY OF WIND-TEMPERATURE INTERACTION: AN INITIAL STUDY TOWARDS OPTIMIZED STRUCTURAL ASSESSMENT OF GLASS COMPONENTS
This work presents a first preliminary study on the stochastic interaction between wind speed and the aforementioned environmental boundary conditions, performed by means of probabilistic approaches. The results show that the probabilistic interaction of different parameters play an important role in the performance assessment of structural components in glass applications. These preliminary results also highlight that further detailed research should be performed to enhance the efficiency and accuracy of the structural assessment and design of glass components.
