The mechanical properties of glass are of vital importance for many applications. Bottles must withstand internal pressure; architectural and automotive glazing must break in a safe way; ovenware must endure brutal temperature shocks; plane windshields must resist high-speed collisions with birds. This training provides key information to understand the ways to improve the strength of glass products.

Contents of the introductory training:

  • Glass composition (soda-lime, borosilicate, crystal) and atomic structure
  • From structure to Young’s modulus and thermal expansion coefficient
  • The key role of glass surface condition
  • Thermal shock resistance
  • Relaxing stress : annealing
  • Tailoring stress : heat strengthening and tempering
  • Special glasses and chemical tempering
