How do silicate glasses behave when they come into contact with water? This question is at the heart of many fields of research and is triggered by either industrial or environmental applications. This one-day short course taught by industry experts gives an up-to-date overview of this topic.
This short course provides a comprehensive knowledge about the fundamental mechanisms of glass corrosion and their relation with kinetics. Various focuses are made on various types of glasses: nuclear and commercial glasses, as well as natural and archaeological glasses. To complete this overview, the course will provide insights into the analytical and experimental techniques used to investigate glass corrosion at various scales and into the different modeling approaches.
