    The goalThe course contains the basics of technology of glassy materials. The scope of the course is investigation of glass structure, glassy state and properties. Students are introduced to procedures of production of commercial glass products, forming methods, annealing and secondary finishing operations. The goal is for student to overcome technological processes for commercial glass production. Students are able to understand and improve processes involved in glass technology.
    The outcomeStudents gain knowledge on structure, specific properties and processes of obtaining glasses for special purposes. Students are able to control and direct the production of commercial glasses.
    Contents of lecturesClassification of glasses. Glassy state. Glass structure. Properties of glass in liquid state and methods of determination. Properties of glass in solid state and methods of determination. Physical and chemical bases of glass synthesis. Raw materials for glass production. Batch calculations. Mechanisms of batch melting. Solid state reactions, glass homogenization. Traditional methods of glass forming (containers and flat glass). Special forming methods. Annealing of glass products. Quality control in glass industry.
    Contents of exercisesCalculations of glass and batch composition. Batch melting. Differential thermal analysis of glass batch and glass. Hot-stage microscopy investigation of glass. Determination of glass stability (crystallization ability). X-ray analysis of thermally treated glass. Investigation of glass properties in liquid and solid state. Determination of temperature dependence of viscosity.
