Our 2-session,“Spotlight on: Bottle Breakage 101” live webinar can help you figure out why a glass container broke, and to know where to start. It will introduce the fundamental concepts of fracture analysis to employees of glass manufacturers, fillers, and distributors.

The first session 1-hour will be conducted on Tuesday July 26 and the second session on Thursday July 28 both beginning at 9:00 AM EDT.

Through two hours of instruction, we will relate glass properties such as elasticity and strength to the conditions required for glass breakage. Sources and responses to the four most common loads affecting glass containers will be explored – including internal pressure, vertical load, impacts, and thermal shock.

Fracture surface markings, breaking stress evaluation, and fracture patterns will be explained in a dynamic visual format, culminating in a case study showing how to perform a fracture analysis from start to finish. This webinar makes for a good primer for those planning to one day attend our “Fracture 1: Testing and Breakage Diagnosis of Glass Containers” 3-day in-person training seminar.

This webinar is a live presentation consisting of two 1-hour sessions including live Q&A opportunities. The live broadcasts will be conducted at 9:00 EDT/13:00 GMT/15:00 CEST on both days, July 26 & 28.
