    Abstract

    The behavior of glass under stress in connection with impact fractures has been the subject of considerable forensic interest. The interpretation of direction of force in impact fractures has found conspicuous application in criminal investigations. The matter has been reviewed by Matwejeff [1], Tryhorn [2], and more recently by McJunkins and Thornton [3].
