Use of structural criteria for calculating oxide glass compositions for hydrogen microcontainers (a review)

  • E. F. Medvedev


To calculate glass compositions with predictable hydrogen permeability, one should use criteria that determine the structure of material, such as the silica modulus, the cohesion factor, and the structure filling coefficient, as well as the glass comparison coefficient based on the cohesion factor. Agraphic method for optimizing numerical values of the specified criteria has been developed. Glass compositions promising for producing hydrogen microcylinders are listed.
