A STUDY OF MUTUAL ADHESION OF GLASS PLATES UNDER STATIC LOADING

The weak point of any structure is always the elements junction node. This article presents the results of a study of the adhesion of glass plates interconnected over the entire surface by means of adhesive materials and triplex technology under the action of static loading. The bearing capacity and deformability of such joints was established. For the research purposes there were designed, manufactured and tested six series of prototypes. The prototypes consisted of three glass plates, each 10 mm thick, interconnected by means of triplex technology and various adhesive materials.

Railway stations as part of the architectural identity of the region

The railway station buildings are regarded in accordance with other buildings in the process of creating the architectural identity of historical lands. The formation of compositional and stylistic types of railway station buildings, their location in Galicia (Halytchyna), Bukovina (Bukovyna) and Transcarpathia (Zakarpattia) is tracked, and the ways of their localization are identified. The main focus is on small railway station buildings. The tendencies of modern state and utilization of the railway station buildings are defined considering the processes of highly developed countries.
