Abstract

The biaxial flexure stress, fracture toughness, and Young's modulus were measured for different nuclear glass compositions. The K//I//e values of all the nuclear glasses tested ranged from 0. 90 to 1. 10 MPa multiplied by (times) m**1**/**2, slightly higher than that for borosilicate glass. Crystallization and incorporation of simulated metallic fines had no detrimental effect.
