Course Objective Glass is one of the most important ceramic materials. It is higly used in daily life and technical application. Glass-ceramic is produced by controlled crystallization of glass. The aims of this lecture are explaining to production, structure, properties and fabrication technologies of glass and glass-ceramics and to provide students with knowledge on glass and glass-ceramics.
Course Content glass formation’s theory, Structure of glass, Glass Melting, Glass furnaces, Glass rafination, Production processes of glasses, Phase transformation in glass, Controlled crystallization of glass, Transformation of glass-ceramic, Nucleating agents for glass-formation, Properties of glass-ceramics, Applications of glass ceramics.
