Abstract : Phase separation in the sodium borosilicate system was studied, as well as reasons for immiscibility in silicate. Models for the alkali ion peak and a higher temperature peak in the internal friction in alkali silicate glasses were developed. Models for static fatigue in glass were discussed, as was the relation of static fatigue to engineering design. Crystals in glass were examined in the electron microscope to study the kinetics and mechanism of crystallization. (Author)
