C. Pascual, S. Nhamoinesu and M. Overend have published research performed at the gFT group (Cambridge) on the flexural response of large scale steel-framed composite glazing panels. The experimental results show that shear-lag effects can be significant in large scale panels and can reduce their effective width by about 40%. The model of Pascual et al. (2017) provides a good fit of experimental deflections and stresses (for effective widths estimated experimentally). Further research is required on the prediction of effective widths and on their variation along the panels.
