Glass viscosity calculations definitively debunk the myth of observable flow in medieval windows

By April Gocha / August 3, 2017

Glass scientists have taken a closer look at the urban legend of glass flow in medieval windows—combining theory and experimental techniques, the results definitely bust the myth and indicate the highest ever direct measurement of glass viscosity at low temperatures.
