Abstract : Static fatigue data for fused silica, borosilicate, and soda-lime glasses in both the abraded and pristine state are presented. Static fatigue sensitivity depends markedly on the surface treatment of the glass (abraded vs. pristine) but little, if any, on glass composition. These results are analyzed in terms of the stress corrosion theory of Charles and Hillig and the atomistic, probability theory of Cox. Neither of these two theories can successfully account for the static fatigue behavior of silicate glasses. (Author)
