    Slow fracture in soda-lime silica glass produces fracture surface markings associated with (1) a limit for stress corrosion crack growth, (2) plateau crack growth in humid environments, and (3) dynamic effects of liquids. For each case, the associated fracture surface marking is described and its interpretation reviewed. Discussion of each marking demonstrates the usefulness of fractography in solving problems of failure analysis as well as understanding slow fracture in glass.
