Dry Strength (kgf/cm2) - DS
This test procedure was employed in the Foresight Ceramic Database and now is available for those having an account at Insight-Live.com. Accumulating test data using the variables defined in these procedures enables us to create tools that enable you to compare the physical properties of materials and recipes.
Dry strength is measured by supporting a bar on two points and applying an increasing force from above at the mid point until failure occurs. A formula into which the span, force and diameter of the bar are substituted yields the drying strength.
VAL - Value (V)
Fired strength tester
Round or square fired bars are subject to a force that tests their tensile strength. The strength can be calculated from the force and the dimensions of the cross section where the break occurred.
