TC18: Glass Melting


The title of TC18 recently changed from “Properties of Glass Forming Melts” into “Glass Melting”. Its members stimulate co-operation between different Technical Committees operating within the cluster “Glass Production” and strives for further actions within the 4 main topics identified and described during the 2008-BRIG expert meeting “Innovative Glass Melting for the year 2020”.

MAIN GOALS OF TC18

TC18 promotes both fundamental and applied research on phenomena connected to glass melting processes. It supports co-operation among technical committees involved in the cluster Glass Production.

 

PLANS FOR 2020

The TC 18 meeting will take place during the 15-th ESG conference and ICG Annual meeting 2020 in Krakow, September 20, 2020.

TC 18 is organizing session entitled “Glass melting” at 15-th ESG conference.

 

ACTIVITY IN 2019

TC18  met during 25th International Congress on Glass in Boston on June 9, 2019.

TC took part in the organization of  the “Glass Technology and Manufacturing Session / Raw Materials, Batch Melting, and Fining” of the 25th International Congress in Boston.

 

PROJEST ON BATCH MELTING KINETICS

Batch to glass conversion is a limiting factor for the entire glass melting process as well as for the efficiency of nuclear waste vitrification. The aim of this project is to review current state-of-the-art approaches to glass melting modeling and to evaluate possible paths to simple but powerful physicochemical models based on physicochemical principles

 

NEW MEMBERS OF TC 18

Sophie Schuller (CEA – Marcoule, France)

Irene Peterson (Corning, USA)

Franck Pigeonneau (CEMEF, MINES ParisTech, France)

Sebastian Krogel (RWTH Aachen, Germany)

 

ACTIVITY IN 2018

TC18  met on its regular meetings during ICG Annual Meeting 2018, Yokohama, September 23, 2018.

TC took part in the organization of  the “Glass Technology and Manufacturing Session / Raw Materials, Batch Melting, and Fining” of the 25th International Congress in Boston.
