Simulations of the fluid dynamics of daily quantity of outflow from different locations (flowing cycles) in a float glass furnace were performed using a FLOTRAN module in ANSYS software. Simulation results were compared with experimental data obtained from side stripe images of the produced glass ribbon. Results showed that, with increased daily melting quantities, the daily quantity of outflow through the furnace outlet from cycle I and cycle III increased, but the daily quantity of outflow from cycle II decreased. The comparison of the simulation and the experimental results reveals remarkable consistency.
