Different types of hybrid constructions, consisting of glass and another material, are analyzed or even newly developed focusing on an optimal structural interaction between both materials and in respect to architectural, static-structural and fabrication criteria. The new, high transparent structural element — hybrid steel-glass beam consists of steel flanges, glass web and bonded connection between them. Long glued joint realized by polymer adhesive is the key element of the structure, therefore the key aspect of the development is the detailing of the steelglass interface and choice of the suitable adhesive. Wide range of adhesives with different mechanical and deformational properties was involved to experimental program. Non-linear Finite Element material models were created in accordance with the results of material tests and than calibrated on steel-glass connection tests. Properly working numerical models of the adhesive layer are being involved to the complex FE model of the hybrid beam and verified by the full-scale tests of the beams with 4 m span.
