New "Bottle Breakage 101" live webinar June 10 & 17

Announcing our newest live webinar, “Spotlight on: Bottle Breakage 101” coming June 10 & 17.  

AGR has been conducting fracture analysis seminars for over 80 years. With budgets and travel still restricted, AGR has constructed a new webinar “Spotlight on: Bottle Breakage 101” to introduce the fundamental concepts of fracture analysis to employees of glass manufacturers, fillers, and distributors.

Our new 2-session, live webinar can help if you ever get tasked with figuring out why a glass container broke, and need to know where to start? We hope you will attend our new two-session, live webinar, “Spotlight on: Bottle Breakage 101” on June 10th and 17th.

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. The webinar is also an ideal refresher for past in-person Fracture 1 participants.

This webinar is a live presentation consisting of two 1-hour sessions plus Q&A, and will be conducted by Bill Slusser, Director of Research, and Dr. Brandon Aldinger. For those unable to view the live broadcast, the webinar will be recorded so attendees can replay the presentation at their convenience. The live broadcast will be conducted at 9:00 EDT/13:00 GMT/15:00 CEST on both days June 10 & 17. The cost is $375 per person. Group discounts are available.

AGR Fracture Diagnosis Case Studies to be shared

We are pleased to announce we will begin sharing a series of Fracture Diagnosis Case Studies.

Over our 90+ years of conducting glass research we have completed numerous analyses which have shaped our understanding of glass strength and failure. We would like to share selected case studies that are noteworthy examples of fracture diagnosis techniques. See our just released Q2 e-Newsletter to learn more and to download the first case study (for free). Download HERE.
