Advances in Fusion and Processing of Glass III Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Glass continues to be a material of great scientific and technological interest; however, the economic pressures on the glass industry, the emphasis on global markets, and the worldwide attention to energy and environmental conservation continue to increase. Forty-seven papers offer new solutions to the challenges of glass manufacturing, particularly as they pertain to melting and forming.

Book News Annotation:

Papers from a July 2003 conference describe recent work in the glass melting process, characterization of glass melts and melt properties, materials for glassmaking, advances in glass forming and glass surface engineering, polyvalent elements and redox behavior, effects of composition and forming on structure and properties, environmental issues, computer modeling and process control, secondary processing, and non-traditional processing. Some specific topics include selective batching for improved commercial glass melting, the effects of vanadium additions on the surface tension of soda lime silicate melts, and kinetics and mechanisms of niobium corrosion in molten glasses.
