Glass has been used in buildings and architecture
applications for centuries, although historically it has not
been considered a material engineers use for design.
Recently, several notable building projects incorporated
significant use of glass in applications beyond windows,
e.g. a glass spiral staircase. Currently, engineers and
architects rely on project specific testing to assess the load
resistance of the glass elements used, as a national glass
design standard does not exist in the United States or
elsewhere in the world. The current methods used for
determining load resistance of windows and window
constructions will be reviewed with a brief overview of
the underlying theory and challenges facing the innovation
window construction and structural use of glass will be
