The structures of boron oxide and sodium borate glasses simulated by a molecular dynamics (MD) method were analyzed in comparison with X-ray diffraction data. There is good agreement between the MD-calculated and observed s·i (s) and g (r) (PCF) curves for 0.25 Na2O·0.75 B2O3 and 0.33 Na2O·0.67 B2O3 glasses. It suggests that the structures satisfy the random network model. On the other hand, the MD-calculated g (r) curve for B2O3 glass agrees with that of a B2O3 melt rather than that of glass.
