Homework Help: Reference for shear modulus vs temperature of glass?

  1. Jul 8, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    I'm doing some preliminary research for a potential IB extended essay topic. It involves thermal stresses in fused glass; details aren't that important right now.

    But I need to find a table, equation, or SOME sort of reference that gives me the relationship between the temperature of glass and its shear modulus. Does anyone have a clue where I could find such a thing?

    Even approximate values, a simplified equation, or a possible source would be appreciated.

    2. Relevant equations

    Shear modulus = (shear stress) / (shear strain)

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Google has failed me after an extensive search, sadly. I've tried looked through the library as well, but met with no success (probably because I don't know where to start).

    PS. First post; apologies if this is not the right forum.
