Glass (Materials That Matter)

Materials that Matter. From wood to plastic to glass, this series will keep readers learning about the materials that make up the products we use every day. Each book tells how each material is found or created, the different processing techniques, and how products are manufactured. With sidebars explaining how to reuse or recycle materials, readers will gain a better understanding of a material’s life cycle.

Materials that Matter. With more than a century of production and growth, Maritime Steel and Foundries Limited continues to offer an endless array of cast steel products and metallurgical solutions to its ever-growing list of customers. Pat Whiteman reports. In New Glasgow, Nova Scotia Canada, (specifically Pictou County) said to be the birthplace of Canadian steel making and the cradle of the Canadian steel industry, you will find Maritime Steel and Foundries Ltd. The company has survived more than 100 years, meeting the challenges of the times, new technology and ever-changing markets.

Why, for that matter, is glass transparent? Why does everyone seem to hate concrete but love diamond? And why is it that chocolate tastes so good? . This book is by no means an exhaustive survey of materials and their relationship to human culture, but rather a snapshot of how they affect our lives, and how even the most innocuous of activities like drinking tea on a roof is founded on a deep material complexity.

This is a concise, up-to-date book that covers a wide range of important ceramic materials used in modern technology. Chapters provide essential information on the nature of these key ceramic raw materials including their structure, properties, processing methods and applications in engineering and technology. Treatment is provided on materials such as alumina, aluminates, Andalusite, kyanite, and sillimanite. The chapter authors are leading experts in the field of ceramic materials. An ideal text for graduate students and practising engineers in ceramic engineering, metallurgy, and materials.

Laminated glass, a composite type of safety glass that holds together when shattered, has been around for decades. Typically, two or more layers of laminated glass contain an interlayer, usually of polyvinyl butyral (PVB) or aliphatic thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU), which keeps the layers of glass bonded even when broken and prevents the glass from shattering into large, sharp pieces. This type of glass is being used in the aerospace industry and is becoming more common, explained Ludvik, an Australian who has spent most of the past 15 years living in New York City. The process is expensive, but allows one to use complex geometries, and yields glass that is every bit as strong as structural steel- though it still needs to be laminated to serve as safety glass.

How do scientists design new materials to solve problems in our world? What makes materials good or bad for different applications?. Last updated: January 29, 2019 or frozen by the lack of it? These are the kinds of questions that orbit the minds of materials scientists-argu.

PDF Experimental data on strengthening of foam glass materials is presented. A new mechanism of strengthening is proposed which involves formation of amorphous matrix nanoglobules. Institute of Strength Physics and Materials Science of Siberian Branch Russian Academy of Sciences. Experimental data on strengthening of foam glass materials is presented. Highlights: nanospheroid occurrence in foam glass; new strengthening mechanism of amorphous materials; correlation between micro-structural changes in the interpore partition of porous materials and mechanical characteristics thereof.

This book is intended to be a concise and comprehensive coverage of the key ceramic and glass materials used in modern technology. A group of international experts have contributed a wide ranging set of chapters that literally covers this field from A (Chap. Although authored by members of the materials science and engineer-ing community, the book can be useful for readers in a wide range of scientific and engineering fields. Robert Doremus of the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute covers one of the most ubiquitous modern ceramics in Chap. 1. The popularity of alumina by itself and as a component in numerous ceramic and glass products follows from its wide range of attractive properties.
