Paper Title:
Design of an Induction Glass Melting Furnace by Means of Mathematical Modelling Using the Finite Element Method
  Abstract

In this paper we propose the design of a novel induction furnace for glass melting. The design is based on a mathematical analysis and performed numerically by means of the Finite Element Method. Several induction coils configurations were tested. The results from the mathematical model show that it is possible to melt glass in a furnace whose hearth is no larger than half a metre by using axial induction coils and high frequencies. This furnace configuration may result in increased glass melting rates along with the elimination of harmful emissions.
