Abstract:

The overall objectives of this study of glass, glass-ceramics, Si3N4 and SiC is aimed at developing predictive relationship for the lifetime of materials under various combinations of chemical, mechanical, and thermal environments. Several analytical surface techniques are now being routinely applied to the characterization of glass and glass surfaces. A clearer understanding of corrosion mechanisms and kinetics emerges when a combination of surface and solution analyses is employed. Glass corrosion mechanisms and kinetics, plus analytical techniques and testing methods used for measuring glass corrosion have been reviewed.
