Abstract
The fundamental purpose of this investigation has been to develop a conceptual understanding of the hardness of glass, especially fused silica. Up until now, hardness has been treated primarily from an empirical viewpoint, with the subsequent result that hardness has little physical significance. In order to formulate hardness into a useful material property it is first necessary to understand the physical process occurring during indentation.
