Summary

Further progress in modeling of glass forming and tempering is reported. Computer simulation is shown to predict quantitatively the wall thickness distribution in a bulb manufactured on a ribbon machine. One example of the new generation of computer tools, the simulator RIBBON, is demonstrated. In the area of tempering, the newly developed theory is used to evaluate membrane stresses and show that their magnitude per unit of temperature gradient is up to 2.5 times that of ordinary temper stresses.
