It is a very known behavior that the glass fragmentation depends on where you break the glass.
Thin glass is the product of choice for electronic device displays. This glass is commonly expensive aluminosilicate glass whose properties are significantly enhanced when subjected to chemical tempering.
Since A.Zoller has proposed the idea of vacuum glass in 1913, vacuum glass technology become more and more mature from the last 100 years.
In this paper, the basics of the heat flux modes are given, a solution method for the glass energy equation is introduced, and some tempering furnaces are theoretically studied to show the portions of the heat transfer phenomena inside furnaces during heating.
This paper was first presented at GPD 2019 by Louis Moreau from AGNORA, Canada.
In a glass tempering process, residual stresses to glass are made with heat treatment. The process includes heating and cooling, and they should be equal on both sides of the glass pane.
In this article, the prestressing profile of chemically prestressed glass panes is investigated and two different measurement methods for recording surface compressive stress will be presented.
In a flat glass laminating oven, glass-film sandwiches are located on rotating rollers and conveyed through a heating chamber in a continuous flow.
