This week in glass news, researchers have developed a computer model that can predict the manufacturing results of various glass compositions. Morten M. Smedskjaer of Aalborg University and Corning Inc. have compiled various computer models to develop what they’re calling the “glass genome,” properties of combining certain materials in the glass-making process. Such a model would streamline the glass-making process, making it more efficient to produce lighter weight composites, smart glass, and other functional glass. Their report has been published by the American Chemical Society’s journal Chemistry of Materials.
