AbstractAbout AuthorsReferences
Despite the constantly emerging new materials at the construction market, ceramic brick is still one of the most popular and reliable wall materials due to its properties, primarily environmental safety and strength. To ensure compliance of the operational properties of ceramic bricks with regulatory requirements, it is necessary, first of all, rationally choose the composition of the charge. Clay raw material as the main component is rarely found without impurities. However, it is the presence of impurities and their number significantly affects the operational properties of the future brick. The article presents the results of physico-chemical studies of some compositions of ceramic bricks, which had a reduced strength, identifies the main causes of their destruction, and provides recommendations for improving the performance properties.
