The impact of the particle shape of organic additives on the anisotropy of a clay ceramic and its thermal and mechanical properties

Abstract : This research investigated the impact of the particle shape of organic additives on the anisotropy of a clay ceramic and its thermal and mechanical properties. The impact of the particle shape was elucidated by addition in the clay ceramic mixture of Olive Stone Flour (OSF) in the form of powder and Wheat Straw (WS) in the form of fibers. The OSF powder reduced the clay ceramic anisotropy with a formation of round shape pores during the firing process. The flexural strength of the clay ceramic was improved by 13% in case of an 8 wt% addition of OSF. On the other hand, the WS fibers increased the anisotropy by the formation of orientated pores along the extrusion plane. The thermal diffusivity of the clay ceramic was improved by 41% in the direction of the thermal gradient of the walls in case of an 8 wt% addition of WS. Hence, this study proved the particle shape of the organic additives as a useful parameter to control the anisotropy of clay ceramics and improve their thermal and mechanical properties.
