Abstract: The bearing glass in combination with the wooden frame represents a new generation of
supporting composite system that is predisposed to be earthquake resistant, while being energy-
efficient and cost-effective, aesthetically acceptable and has good bearing characteristics.
Furthermore, this composite system represents a design in which each material transmits the
load and with the mutual interaction of the constituent elements simultaneously be earthquake-
resistant. Research on friction between wood and glass is of crucial importance for
understanding the behaviour and the performance of the composite system in which the glass
panel can freely slide in a wooden frame. Numerical models of the composite system are
developed and the output data (frictional stress) are compared with the experimental results.
