Abstract
When dealing with the structural renovation of 19th and 20th century iron/steel and glass constructions, the glass is mostly considered to be dead load in a calculation model. However, the glass has a contribution to the structural performance of the slender iron components. To determine the shear strength of a connection of a glass plate sealed to historic iron with a structural adhesive, lap shear tests were carried out. When preparing the specimen, two parameters important for renovation, were taken into account. First, the influence of the surface roughness was studied, as the iron sections need to be grit blasted. Secondly, the influence of the application of a paint layer, to protect the iron section for corrosion, was examined. The results of the lap shear tests on 19th century iron were compared to lap shear tests on modern steel and aluminium, all bonded with an MS polymer structural adhesive. The durability when exposed to a warm and humid environment was evaluated. The experiments demonstrated that the surface roughness and the paint layer had no or only a minor effect on the average shear strength, which is positive for the renovation practice. The degradation due to durability of the applied MS polymer adhesive is substantial.
