Rheological Behavior of Glass
The viscosity of glass receives much attention in both academic and manufacturing circles of endeavor. It is a property that is very sensitive to composition differences and hence helps the theoretical scientist understand glass structure and, at the same time, gives the manufacturing team a property suitable for quality control. However, quality control is only one aspect of importance that viscosity has in glass manufacture and applications. It is used in melting, forming, annealing, tempering, ionexchange, and sealing.
