///The Glass Competence Center (GCC) of the TU Darmstadt
The Institute for Statics and Design (ISM+D) and the Material Testing Institute (MPA) of the TU Darmstadt both have strong competencies in the field of glass construction. A team of 15 employees works at both facilities within the framework of research projects, applied industrial research, approval, and licensing procedures as well as production controls with the material glass and its applications in construction and architecture, automotive engineering and in the consumer goods industry. Theory and experiment are synergistically linked. The extensive experimental equipment makes it possible to deal with almost all questions from the various fields of competence around glass as a construction material and in cooperation with neighboring fields, such as polymer materials.
