On the strength of glasses

, : On the strength of glasses. Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 109(40): 16068-16072

The remarkable strength of glasses is examined using the random first order transition theory of the glass transition. The theory predicts that strength depends on elastic modulus but also on the configurational energy frozen in when the glass is prepared. The stress catalysis of cooperative rearrangements of the type responsible for the supercooled liquid's high viscosity account quantitatively for the measured strength of a range of metallic glasses, silica, and a polymer glass.
