Summary

Mathematical modeling of glass furnaces started around 1965. Validation experiments were carried out by several authors over the years. These validations show a fairly good agreement between measurements and models. Certain errors are more likely to come from unknown glass properties and boundary conditions than from the mathematical model itself.
