Investigative Study of effects of Chicken droppings, Melon shell and Palm kernel shell additives on the refractory Properties of Isiagu Clay
This research focused on investigating the effects of chicken dropping, melon shell and palm kernel additives on the refractory properties of Isiagu Clay. The raw materials were collected locally,
Thermal properties of porous ceramics manufactured by direct foaming using silicon sludge and silica fume
ABSTRACT In this study, waste silica fume was used as the raw material for manufacturing porous ceramics, and its mechanical and thermal properties required for application as thermal insulators were
Ceramic Tiles Production from Cullet and Agricultural Wastes Obtained from Wheat and Sugarcane Cultivation
Agricultural wastes are a big source for environmental pollution so it’s a good choice to recycle them so as to get an environmental and economic benefit. The purpose of this research is to determine
Recycling of Cullet, Waste Clay Bricks and Wastes Resulted from Wheat and Sugarcane Cultivations in the Manufacture of Fired Clay Bricks
The agriculture wastes are considered as a big environmental problem. The main purpose of this research is to determine the possibility of producing fired clay bricks from a mixture of agriculture
Property analysis of thermal insulating materials made from Ghanaian anthill clay deposits
Abstract This work investigates the physical, thermal and mechanical properties of thermal insulating bricks produced from Ghanaian red anthill clay (RAC) reinforced with sawdust, rice husk and their
Sustainable ceramics derived from solid wastes: a review
ABSTRACT Wastes from different manufacturing processes and energy generation unite are attributed to the ecological and health issues. Instead of land-filling, the waste can be recycled or reused to
Features of the structure and phase composition of materials based on aluminum oxide and chromium borides obtained under conditions of SHS and free SHS compression
In the present work, ceramic materials based on aluminum oxide and chromium borides in the Cr 2 O 3 -Al-B system with different ratios of the starting components, from stoichiometric to excess free
Influence of sawdust particle size on fired clay brick properties
This study investigates the effect of adding different size fractions of the same pore forming agent (sawdust) on the material’s compressive strength and heat transfer. The samples were dry pressed


Production and characterization of clay – cow dung insulating fire-bricks
The use of clay is of high economic potential in Abeokuta, South West Nigeria, to metallurgical, chemical and allied, ceramic and glass industries. This research work was carried out to investigate
Influence of Porosity and Pore Distributions on Strength Properties of Porous Alumina
In this work, strength properties of porous alumina with three different porosities as well as dense one were investigated to clarify porosity effects on strength properties. It was revealed that the
Optimal design on the high-temperature mechanical properties of porous alumina ceramics based on fractal dimension analysis
Fractal theory and regression analysis were employed for the first time to investigate the effect of pore size and pore distribution on high-temperature mechanical properties of porous alumina
Coefficient of Thermal Diffusivity of Insulation Brick Developed from Sawdust and Clays
This paper presents an experimental result on the effect of particle size of a mixture of ball clay, kaolin, and sawdust on thermal diffusivity of ceramic bricks. A mixture of dry powders of ball
Use of mineral coal ashes in insulating refractory brick
Coal ash from Candiota thermoelectric power plant in southern Brazil is a waste generated in great amount. Current estimates indicate that coal ash production is likely to reach 2.000.000 tons per
Monte Carlo simulations of phonon transport in nanoporous silicon and germanium
Heat conduction of nanoporous silicon and germanium thin films is studied thanks to a statistical approach. Resolution of phonon Boltzmann transport equation is performed with a Monte Carlo technique
