Treatise on Materials Science and Technology, Volume 22: Glass III is the third of a series of review articles on glass science and technology. The book discusses the theories of structure and bonding and experimental methods for analyzing silicate glass surfaces; the gel methods for making glasses; and the water in glass method. The text also describes the fracture and fatigue of glass; as well as the stresses in glass-to-metal seals. Materials scientists, materials engineers, and students taking materials science and technology courses will find the book invaluable.
