Description: The purpose of this project is to develop the batch reaction data for a soda-lime-silicate glass needed to improve the batch part of the glass-furnace model being developed for the glass industry. Evolved gas analysis combined with batch expansion measurement and thermal analysis was successfully applied to obtain batch reaction data. The heat-capacity measurement by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) was suggested as a promising method to derive the heat-of-fusion data inexpensively for many different technical glass batches. More tests on a variety of glass batches and parametric studies of the suggested methods are needed for validation. The experimental methods for batch reaction studies and the methodology for obtaining inexpensive heat-of-fusion data developed in this study can also be applied to various types of other technical glasses.
