Evaluation of the Degree of Crystallization in Glass-Ceramics by Dielectric Constant Measurements
A theoretical procedure was developed with the aim of obtaining a rapid and accurate estimation of the degree of crystallization in glasses obtained from fly ash by measuring the dielectric constants. Compositions were prepared by melting the mixture of fly ashes, nucleators, fusing agents and clearing agents at 1500°C. Dielectric constant measurements were carried out by means of universal bridge. The results were compared with the degree of crystallization as evaluated by the method of density and showed a good agreement.
