Summary

Thermal effects in glasses under melting, cooling, and forming conditions are investigated using Glass Pro, a new tool for interactive computing. Interactive computing allows for the immediate use of computer models with no additional development work The absorption coefficient of a soda-lime-silica glass is assigned various values, and the effects of these changes on glass behavior in melting, cooling, and secondary heating are investigated. The “fountain” effect in pressing and the influence of the overall temperature distribution in blowing are demonstrated The explanation is found for a transient tensile stress peak that appears at the surface of a glass plate on the initial stage of tempering.
