Observation of High-Speed Fracture Phenomena of Glass Containers by Using Underwater Shockwave
The glass containers crushing process for recycling by using underwater shockwave was observed and the new cullet generation technique by explosive energy was proposed. In this study, the high-speed fracture behaviors of glass containers were visualized by using the high-speed photography and FEM simulation.
