Thermal stress analysis of glass with temperature dependent coefficient of expansion

In calculating transient and residual stresses in a glass plate during heat treatments, a theory based on the linear viscoelasticity has been used (1). The problem has been appropriately formulated with the initial and boundary conditions using the actual geometric and physical data and the measured material properties. Comparison between theoretical results and those observed in practice showed that such theory served as a good approximation in spite of highly idealized assumptions.
