Survey of the Physical Basis of Some Glass Properties

  • Werner Vogel


A mathematical presentation, or attempts at the calculation of glass properties, are as old as modern glass research or the systematic development of new glasses. In most cases, relations between composition and properties were established entirely on an empirical basis. One was forced frequently to introduce one, two, or more constants into equations describing these relations in order to obtain better agreement with experimental data.
