Keywords:Glass melting furnace, Platinum group particles, Numerical Analysis, Plumes

The motion of plumes containing platinum group particles in melting glass was simulated numerically as the motion of a single droplet. Estimation equations of falling velocities of a droplet were obtained from the numerical experiments with changing the droplet diameter and viscosity.
