In this study, the analysis on structure has been performed for lead silicate (PbSiO3) melt. The structural heterogeneity of the melt was analyzed via the void-simplex, cation-simplex and oxygen-simplex. The densification of the melt is obtained by decreasing the radius and changing the number of void-simplex. We show that a number of large interstitial site for oxygen and cation present in the liquid.
