April 14th, 2014. On Thursday, April 24th, 2014, the BF (German Glass Association “Bundesverband Flachglas” will again present my one-hour webinar “Glasbruch – Grundlagen” (Breakage of glass – basics, the webinar will be in German language). I will explain the basics of material science and the properties of glass. A short look into linear-elastic fracture mechanics will illustrate why and how glass breaks and how to predict that.

The second part “Glasbruch – Vertiefung” (Breakage of glass – advanced training, in German language) on Tuesday, May 13th, 2014 will broaden the matter and inform about the different ways to break of different glass types. I will talk about thermally and mechanically induced glass breakage as well as about their possible causes.
