Summary

Glass-coated metal systems and the reasons for failure by fracture are discussed. Salient aspects of what is known about brittle fracture are reviewed. Factors that affect the fracture of vitreous materials are discussed. Adherence failure is treated as a fracture process. Possible means for minimizing fracture of glass-coated metal systems are suggested.
