Modulus of elasticity and thermal expansion coefficient of glassy solids


A linear correlation between the modulus of elasticity and the inverse square of the thermal expansion coefficient for inorganic glasses has been found. The nature of interrelation between linear and nonlinear properties of solids has been discussed.
