A total of 8 different connections (4 custom profiles and 4 L-profiles) for curtain wall systems are developed while investigating the benefits of applying modern numerical analysis, optimization and parametric design techniques to extruded aluminium alloy profile design. Investigations of modern connection designs offered by manufacturers is done. The connections are developed and designed according to relevant Eurocode and curtain walling standard specifications. Optimization algorithm results, material savings and connection designs are presented.
