Because of their characteristic high slenderness ratios, glass elements are usually relatively sensitive to buckling phenomena. As regards laminated glass components in particular, for instance effects of temperature variations or load duration complicate the correct estimation and prediction of their buckling response, which is already conditioned by slenderness ratios and by limited tensile strengths. In this context, within COST Action TU0905 'Structural glass', the Task Group 12 'Stability' focuses its main networking activity on the collection, assessment, discussion and validation of existing analytical models, as well as on the development of new techniques for a practical buckling analysis and verification of structural glass elements. In the paper, an overview of main activities and results is provided.
