The Strength of Glass

  • Werner Vogel

Glass is a brittle solid and, proverbially, its mechanical toughness is minimal. In the past, many experiments and developments aimed at improving the strength of glassware. Up to now these attempts were only partially successful, but they did open entirely new applications for glass on the basis of the improvements achieved.
