Editorial: prof. K.L. Edwards, Elsevier BV, Materials and Design DOI 10.1016/j.matdes.2010.11.057, vol.32; issue 4, p.1717-1732, 2011.


Glass products have applications in design engineering and they can solve many special problems. This materials can work in situations in which plastics and metals would fail and need to be part of designer’s repertoire.. In some situations , by using of these materials, some difficult problems would be solved . This paper contains a number of chapters as it follows : a brief about ceramics family , a short history of glass , a brief about physics and the technology of glass fabrication , recently developed glasses with special destinations, testing methods and news about glass parts processing ( grinding, waterjet processing, laser cutting , Nano-imprint lithography ,etc) . The last chapter of this review paper contain some strategic lines of glass usage in industry and estimations about the future of glass development.
