“Elastic Modulus of Gelcast Cellular Ceramics at High Temperatures”
The elastic modulus of alumina cellular samples with various porosities produced by gelcasting foamed suspensions was measured at room and high temperatures, and the results were compared with a novel equation that describes the effect of porosity and temperature on elastic modulus.

“Effect of Oxides on Decreasing Melt Viscosity and Energy Demand of E-Glass”

By compositional modeling, the forming temperature (viscosity) of commercial E-glass melts has been signifi- cantly decreased by decreasing percent SiO2 and increasing percent CaO, and/or by adding a flux such as Li2O. This reduces the energy use and cost, while yielding fibers that meet ASTM and user specifications.
