Abstract

Although soda lime glass is the most common used transparent material in architecture, little is known about the corrosion effects on long term strength and the interaction between corrosion and defects. Extensive testing on soda lime bars under different environmental conditions and different degrees of damage has resulted in a more clear picture of the stress-corrosion mechanisms involved. The effects of these on long term strength are discussed.
