Abstract

One of the major contributions of this study is the introduction of a novel connection device that may be used in complex architectural glazing systems that utilization of the previously discussed connection systems is not applicable. In this newly proposed connection device, the friction mechanism is incorporated between spherical and cylindrical surfaces. In this chapter the development of the idea of the connection device is presented as well as the adjustments necessary for adapting it for different architectural glazing systems. Finally based on the Coulomb theory of friction, the governing equations that control the behavior of the connection device are presented.
