Abstract

Glass usage in structures has increased dramatically during the last decades due to its special properties, such as transparency, high theoretical strength, low density, durability and functionality. This paper reviews glass as a material in addition to different methods of glass manufacturing (float glass and cast glass) and how they have developed over the years. In addition, this paper reviews different glass types (annealed glass, heat strengthened glass, toughened glass, and laminated glass) and their properties.
