This booklet describes the structure-property-composition relationships for silicate glasses and melts of commercial and geological curiosity. From Antiquity to the twentieth century, an introductory bankruptcy provides this topic in a historic standpoint. easy techniques are then mentioned in 3 chapters the place cognizance is paid to the glass transition and its a variety of outcomes on soften and glass homes, to the structural and actual transformations among amorphous and crystalline silicates, and to the mutual relationships among neighborhood order, energetics and actual houses.
With natural SiO2 as a kick off point, compositions of accelerating chemical complexity are successively handled in a dozen chapters. the results of network-modifying cations on constitution and houses are first exemplified by means of alkali and alkaline earth parts. the categorical effect of aluminum, iron, titanium, and phosphorus are then reviewed. With water, volatiles within the procedure COHS, noble gases, and halogens, the results of unstable elements also are defined. The final bankruptcy explains how the implications bought on easier melts could be utilized to chemically advanced platforms. In every one bankruptcy, actual and chemical homes are defined first and through a assessment of glass and soften constitution. whilst attainable, strain results also are considered.
*From SiO2 to complicated silicate compositions, the actual and chemical homes of melts and glasses of geological and commercial interest
*Structural characterization of melts and glasses, from ambient to excessive strain and temperature
*From simple thoughts to a sophisticated point, a constant description of the structure-property-composition relationships in glasses and melts
