Presents an indispensable resource to the glass manufacturing industry

The 73rd Conference on Glass Problems was organized by the Kazuo Inamori School of Engineering, Alfred University, Alfred, New York, and The Glass Manufacturing Industry Council, Westerville, Ohio. Since 1934, the annual Conference on Glass Problems has addressed the challenges facing the glass industry with innovative solutions that have led to new and enhanced glass products and processes. Each year, the proceedings from this conference, which has become the largest industrial glass meeting in the United States, have been published for the benefit of glass, ceramics, and materials scientists and engineers around the world. This volume features the state–of–the–science collection of papers presented at the 73rd Conference on Glass Problems. During the conference, leading international scientists and engineers met for two days to discuss the latest innovations and solutions for glass manufacturing. Moreover, they forecasted and explored future directions of the glass industry. The proceedings are grouped into five sections:

  • Glass Melting
  • Melting, Raw Materials, Batch Reactions, and Recycling
  • Coatings and Strengthening
  • Refractories
  • Process Control and Modeling

The 73rd Conference on Glass Problems is essential reading for all who need to stay abreast of the latest research in the glass manufacturing field. Readers will find valuable information that enables the glass industry to continue to innovate with new and improved glass products and processes to meet the needs of both industrial and general consumers.
