Penn Researchers Explain Failure of Glassy Materials

Penn Researchers Explain Failure of Glassy Materials

Scientists at the University of Pennsylvania have now revealed a common characteristic extending through the range of glassy materials. They show that the scaling between the stiffness and strength of a glassy material does not change, implying a steady critical strain, which these materials can withstand before catastrophic failure, in spite of the high variation found in the physical properties of this class of materials.
