Resumo

The production of silica refractories using fused silica has an advantage over refractories produced by the conventional method, as it does not present volumetric variations due to changes in crystalline phases and because they present the possibility of complex formats. As such, viscosity is critical to the process. Viscosity data were taken from the Sciglass database with chemical system SiO 2 -Al 2 O 3 -CaO- K 2 O-Na 2 O-TiO 2 , temperature and each related viscosity. Numerical modeling was performed using artificial neural networks by varying neurons and hidden layers. The best artificial neural network had 3 neurons and 1 hidden layer and demonstrated collinearity with the test data and the predicted data using the test data. Sensitivity analysis was performed and demonstrated agreement with the literature. The main parameters of the 3-1 artificial neural network for the prediction of viscosity in silica refractories were demonstrated.
