Panes in the building envelope have the possibility to stabilize buildings. To use the pane as a shear wall, the connection between the pane and the casting has to be activated. This research focuses on a system consisting of a steel frame, a single pane and one of three defined circumferentially glued joint types, namely a polyurethane joint on end, a two-sided and a one-sided epoxy joint. A numerical model has been developed and validated for a parametric research. The validated models match well against the experimentally found results. The conclusion is that the numerical models are applicable for the purpose of the non-cracking design of panes acting as a shear wall.
