The Transformation of Added Vegetal Waste Materials during Clay Brick Firing

Abstract:

Article Preview

Vegetal materials are generated in high amounts and are applied as additives in clay bricks since ancient times. They have a certain heat contribution to the firing process. As revealed by X-ray Powder Diffraction, main component of vegetal waste materials is cellulose. Thermal and Evolved Gas Analysis revealed the combustion process in its details. Mixtures of clay and vegetal additives prepare for test bodies were analyzed by Thermal Analysis. The thermal effects were quantified by Differential Thermal Analysis and correlated with Thermogravimetry and Derivative Thermogravimetry.
