Description: This lecture provides the teacher and students with a basis to develop sound and appropriate glass and aluminium roof designs; it explains the principles behind good design. After working through the course, the students will be in a position to design a glass roof which meets the requirements of local building regulations, and which is suited to the national traditions of the destination markets. This includes the collection of data on the local climate, because the product needs to withstand the climatic conditions in the different regions of the market. Safety and functionality are also important parameters of the finished product. Basic design engineering background, basic knowledge of corrosion effects, and some familiarity with TALAT lecture series 2100, 2200 and 5104 is assumed.
