0 Rezensionen
This is the first book to discuss the correlation between the performance of industrial processes and practice-relevant properties, such as strength and optical properties. Interdisciplinary in his approach, the author discusses both the science and technology, starting with glass past and present, its structure, and rheology.
The sections on properties include mechanical strength and contact resistance, ageing, mechanics of glass processes, the production and control of residual stresses, high-tech products and current research and development. Applications covered include glazing, packaging, optical glass, glass fibers for reinforcement, and abrasive tools.

Über den Autor (2008)

Eric Le Bourhis initially taught at a secondary school in Lima, Peru, between 1989 and 1991. He then returned to France, gaining his PhD at Paris VII University in 1994, when he began his investigations of the thermo-mechanical properties of semiconductors. After this, he joined Evry University for one year as an assistant professor, before moving to the Saint Gobain R&D team at Aubervilliers for four years as an engineer. In 1998, he returned to academia, taking up a post at Poitiers University where he has been a professor since 2002. Since 1998, Prof Le Bourhis has been promoting sol-gel hybrid coatings in close collaboration with glass industrial manufacturers, while his other research activities focus on the mechanical properties of thin-films and nanostructures.
