In glass failure analysis one uses evidence such as the attached photograph to demonstrate that a nickel sulfide particle can initiate tempered glass failure. The NiS particle is at the center of expanding Wallner lines. The Wallner lines are used by the glass failure analysis expert to track the direction of the crack growth. In this case the Wallner lines are spreading from a single point; thus, this is the failure origin and the NiS particle is the cause of the tempered glass failure. The California glass expert has seen numerous examples of this type of glass failure.
