glass breakage

I an trying to find literature on glass breakages (all kinds).
Is there a step-to-step procedure that would include for all potential and possible causes ?

the book : BRADT, TRESSLER Fractography of glass, Plenum Press, 1975 (ISBN 0306448807) is a valuable introduction

a fractographic examination shall be performed :
1/ determine the location of the origin of the fracture
2/ polariscopic examination to determine the presence of local stresses
3/ optical and SEM/EDX examination of the footprints on the surface of the broken item in the vicinity of the fracture origin (abrasion, metal deposits, flaws, ...) helps to trace back to the cause of the fracture
4/ optical and SEM examination of the fractured surface helps to compute the breaking stress.

I hope this will help you,
sincerely,
Jean Louis HEITZ
