Triaxial Testing of Okpella Granite with Kaolinite Material
The book takes a look at series of tests carried out using the tri-axial blend of locally sourced materials like Granite, Kaolin and Ball Clay, at deriving a workable Ceramic refractory towards meeting our local needs is inevitable in this era of recession, especially in Nigeria. There is the urgent need to discourage the extreme and awkward dependence of local potters and ceramists on imported materials and ceramic items so as to profound substitutable solutions to the challenges facing the country's ceramic production. Local alternative to the sustenance and survival of the ceramic industry is paramount especially to the developmental and technological growth of our economy. It is this quest that necessitated the need for a research development and documentation of locally sourced refractory materials which were compounded to derive working formula for a workable refractory in ceramic production, after a series of tests on different formulae. It is believed that this book will be of utmost importance to not just the ceramists but to all who are desirous of learning especially the research oriented.
