Vibrational molding of ceramic concretes. Molding systems and the regularities of the process

  • Yu. E. Pivinskii


We developed a vibrational molding process for obtaining ceramic concretes using rigid mixtures and metallic molds. The as-formed semifinished products are characterized by a fairly high mechanical strength. A siliceous (silica-based) ceramic concrete having a porosity of 12–16% and an ultimate compressive strength of 20–25 N/mm2 was obtained. The mechanism of structure evolution of the semifinished products was identified; it is determined by the interaction between the phases and fixing (orientation) of the liquid phase of the highly concentrated binder suspensions due to the molecular forces of the filler grains.

The decisive effect of the binder on the mechanical properties of the ceramic concretes was established. On decreasing the binder content of the ceramic concretes from 39 to 12%, their specific strength increases by 4 times.
