Abstract

A kinetic treatment of glass formation is presented. This treatment is based on the construction of time-temperature-transformation curves corresponding to some barely detectable degree of crystallinity. From such curves, the minimum cooling rates required to form glasses of various materials are estimated. The most important factors determining the glass-forming abilities of different materials are suggested to be the magnitude of the viscosity at the melting point and the rate of increase in viscosity with falling temperature below the melting point.
