Industrial Technology Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Glass
Mechanics and Technology
by Eric Le Bourhis

Glass is the first book to discuss the correlation between the performance of industrial processes and practice-relevant properties, such as strength and optical properties.

The sections on properties include:

  • mechanical strength and contact resistance
  • ageing
  • mechanics of glass processes
  • the production and control of residual stresses
  • high-tech producers
  • current research and development

Glass also discusses both the science and technology, starting with glass past and present, its structure, and rheology.
