Method of Calculating the Structural Parameters of Ceramic Slips

The method of determining the volumetric-geometric structure of corundum slip was elaborated by including calculations of the average coordination number, the specific surface area S0 of the system (the surface area of a unit volume of the slip), and the number of interparticle contacts in a unit volume of the slip. This will eliminate the ambiguity in the presented structural parameters of the slip.
