Molecular dynamics simulations and energy-minimization techniques have been applied for the firsttime to determine the whole set of elastic properties (Young’s modulus, shear modulus, bulk modulus,and Poisson’s ratio) of alkali silicate glasses with different ion modifiers (Li, Na, and K) in the range0-30 mol % alkaline oxide. Excellent agreement has been found between the simulation results and theexperimental data. The peculiar behavior of the Li-containing glasses with respect to the Na and K onesis extensively discussed in terms of the glass structural features. It is found that the elastic propertyvariation as a function of alkali addition can be explained by three concurrent factors: (1) depolymerizationof the silica network; (2) increasing the cohesion of the glass by the establishment of alkali-NBO bonds;and (3) decreasing the free volume with consequent increasing of the glass packing density.

Abstract

Molecular dynamics simulations and energy-minimization techniques have been applied for the firsttime to determine the whole set of elastic properties (Young’s modulus, shear modulus, bulk modulus,and Poisson’s ratio) of alkali silicate glasses with different ion modifiers (Li, Na, and K) in the range0-30 mol % alkaline oxide. Excellent agreement has been found between the simulation results and theexperimental data. The peculiar behavior of the Li-containing glasses with respect to the Na and K onesis extensively discussed in terms of the glass structural features. It is found that the elastic propertyvariation as a function of alkali addition can be explained by three concurrent factors: (1) depolymerizationof the silica network; (2) increasing the cohesion of the glass by the establishment of alkali-NBO bonds;and (3) decreasing the free volume with consequent increasing of the glass packing density.
