Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

This edition retains its pedagogical structure but has been extensively revised and updated. Features advances in the field pertaining to the latest developments on fatigue and fracture as well as environmental aspects of some hazardous materials and their effects on glass during long term storage. Contains a new description of the oxidation state of glass and its components based on the phase rule. Includes a new chapter on chemical durability with recent information regarding corrosion of glass and radioactive waste disposal.

Reviews provided by Syndetics


Doremus has updated this second edition to include corrosion and the reaction of gases with glasses. Recent advances in zirconium fluoride glasses and electrical conductivity of glass have also been added. The book contains 17 chapters, each supplemented with a complete list of references. The historical, physical, mechanical, structural, chemical, and optical properties of glass are covered. It makes a fine replacement for the first edition (CH, Jun'74) and a good supplement to update Samuel R. Scholes's Modern Glass Practice, 7th rev. ed. by Charles H. Greene (CH, Feb'76). The level of the book assumes that the reader will have an understanding of chemistry and calculus. Upper-division undergraduate through professional. J. P. Neville; Wentworth Institute of Technology
