AB  - The main idea of the present study was to investigate the impact of the ongoing world
crisis on the socio-economic issues in Serbia concerning building materials usage and purchase. This research fills in the gaps in the literature and contributes to the comprehension of how the crisis has affected salaries, market pricing, and materials consumption in the building sector. The data are gathered through a questionnaire and analyzed using a statistical methodology (frequencies, descriptive statistics, and Spearman’s correlations). Most of the former studies investigated the surveys conducted on specialists in the field, while this study analyzed the perspectives of random people. Socio-demographic issues are analyzed along with materials consumption before and after the crisis. A special emphasis is given to ecological awareness and novel materials usage. Additionally, it captures a broad shift in the economy and ecological consciousness in a developing country. The majority of respondents are open to using novel building materials and products, but their choice would largely be influenced by cost, the amount of effort involved, and their understanding of the advantages. Statistical approaches revealed that the crisis has a considerable impact on the markets for construction and building supplies, altering consumers’ decisions when purchasing.
This contribution lays the groundwork for developing countries in the modern world to improve
sustainability and adopt circular thinking. Professionals in Serbia need to have a more eco-aware
mindset and enhance how they provide pertinent information to potential clients. This study is
limited by the number of respondents. For future mathematical modeling and forecasting, more
answerers are needed.

AB  - The machine learning technique for prediction and optimization of building material performances became an essential feature in the contemporary civil engineering. The Artificial Neural Network (ANN) prognosis of mortar behavior was conducted in this study. The model appraised the design and characteristics of seventeen either building or high-temperature mortars. Seven different cement types were employed. Seventeen mineral additives of primary and secondary origin were embedded in the mortar mixtures. Cluster Analysis and Principal Component Analysis designated groups of similar mortars assigning them a specific purpose based on monitored characteristics. ANN foresaw the quality of designed mortars. The impact of implemented raw materials on the mortar quality was assessed and evaluated. ANN outputs highlighted the high suitability level of anticipation, i.e., 0.999 during the training period, which is regarded appropriate enough to correctly predict the observed outputs in a wide range of processing parameters. Due to the high predictive accuracy, ANN can replace or be used in combination with standard destructive tests thereby saving the construction industry time, resources, and capital. Good performances of altered cement mortars are positive sign for widening of economical mineral additives application in building materials and making progress towards achieved carbon neutrality by reducing its emission.

AB  - The usage possibility of 19 composites of raw refractory clays from Serbia containing approximately 53.29% of SiO2 and 26.73% of Al2O3 is presented. The sum of fluxing oxides was 57.74%, while these materials contained 32% of quartz, 29% of kaolinite and 26% of illite–mica. Dilatometry tests revealed a sudden shrinkage with the peak at approximately 1115 °C, owing to the formation of mullite. The refractoriness was in the range of 1581–1718 °C, which classifies the composites from low- to high-duty refractories. Based on correlation analysis, the refractoriness mostly depended on the content of alumina. The lightness of the fired test pieces was lower after firing when compared to the dry samples, and it decreased with the firing temperature from reddish to grayish. The study presents a novel attempt to define all the necessary properties of raw refractory clays and products fired at the 1100–1300 °C range on a laboratory level. Most of these clays can be used as natural refractory materials for ceramic and glass furnace lining. The organic matter in some of the samples influences negatively the fast-firing process.

AB  - Rare earth elements (REE) are frequently referred to as ingredients for enhancements in modem industry, as they are extensively applied in many industrial branches due to their accented electro-magnetic and optical properties. REE have end-utilizations as catalysts, magnets, and as dopants for ceramic materials. Rare earth minerals are scarce therefore the unconventional REE-containing resources such as waste materials and industrial byproducts are continuously being investigated. Coal combustion products comprise REE concentrations varying between 200 ppm and 1500 ppm. This quantity can be isolated though the extraction procedure. In this study, the five stages extraction was conducted on the coal combustion ash from the selected landfill site. The extractions of 32 elements (As, Ga, Ce, Be, Ge, Nd, Cr, Zr, Eu, Cu, Nb, Gd, Co, Mo, Dy, Li, Ag, W, Mn, Cd, Au, Ni, In, Hg, Pb, Sn, Ti, V, Sb, Th, Zn, and La) were conveyed. Chemical analyses were conducted via XRF, ICP-OES, ICP-MS, and MS techniques. The complexity of the obtained data was examined by Principal component analysis and Cluster analysis in order to derive interconnections between quantity of elements and landfill characteristics, as well as mutual relationships among the elements of interest, and to assess the accomplishment of REE recovery from the coal ash.

AB  - Surface sediments collected from twelve stations in the Boka Kotorska Bay were analyzed for the level and distribution of twenty-six elements and ten oxides, grain sizes, organic matter, and carbonate content. Potentially toxic elements (Al, Fe, Mn, Cr, Zn, Ni, Cu, Pb, As, Co, U) were determined to assess the contamination status and potential environmental risk according to the single-element indices (enrichment factor (EF), geoaccumulation index (Igeo), contamination factor (CF)), and combined index (pollution load index (PLI)). The single-element indices EF and CF revealed that the surface marine sediment was moderately polluted with Pb, Cu, and Cr, while Igeo indicated moderate pollution with Ni > Cr > Zn > Cu > As and moderate to heavy pollution with Pb, as a result of the anthropogenic factors. The method of the combined effect of toxic elements, PLI, showed the highest pollution rate at the shipyard location in the Bay of Tivat. Pearson's correlation coefficient (r), principal component analysis (PCA), and cluster analysis (CA) were applied to highlight similarities and differences in the distribution of the investigated elements in the Bay, confirming the claim obtained by the pollution indices. The sediment contamination with most heavy metals, such as Cr, Zn, Ni, Cu, Pb, and As, has been identified in the Tivat Bay area.

Pearson's correlation coefficient (r), principal component analysis (PCA), and cluster analysis (CA) were applied to highlight similarities and differences in the distribution of the investigated elements in the Bay, confirming the claim obtained by the pollution indices. The sediment contamination with most heavy metals, such as Cr, Zn, Ni, Cu, Pb, and As, has been identified in the Tivat Bay area.",

AB  - This study analyzed the last 20 years' data available on power plant coal ashes used in clay brick production. The statistical analysis has been carried out for a total of 302 cases based on the relevant parameters reported in the literature. The chemical composition of the clays and coal ashes, percentage incorporation and maximum particle size of ash, size of fired samples, peak firing temperature, and the corresponding soaking time were selected as inputs for modeling. The product characteristics i.e. open porosity, water absorption, and compressive strength was taken as output parameters. An artificial neural network model has been developed and showed a satisfactory fit to experimental data and predicted the observed output variables with the overall coefficient of determination (r(2)) of 0.972 during the training period. Besides, the reduced chi-square, mean bias error, root mean square error, and mean percentage error were utilized to check the correctness of the obtained model, which proved the network generalization capability. The sensitivity analysis of the model suggested that the quantity of Na2O coming from brick clays, the percentages of SiO2 and K2O coming from ashes, and MgO coming from clays were the most influential parameters in descending order for the ash-clay composite bricks' quality, mostly owing to the influence of fluxes during firing.

AB  - The numerical model of the granular flow within an aggregate mixture, conducted in the vertical static and/or the conveyor blender, was explored using the discrete element method (DEM) approach. The blending quality of limestone fine aggregate fractions binary mixture for application in self-compacting concrete was studied. The potential of augmenting the conveyor mixer working efficiency by joining its operation to a Komax-type vertical static mixer, to increase the blending conduct was investigated. In addition the impact of the feed height on the flow field in the cone-shaped conveyor mixer was examined using the DEM simulation. Applying the numerical approach enabled a deeper insight into the quality of blending actions, while the relative standard deviation criteria ranked the uniformity of the mixture. The primary objective of this investigation was to examine the behavior of mixture for two types of blenders and to estimate the combined blending action of these two mixers, to explore the potential to augment the homogeneity of the aggregate fractions binary mixture, i.e., mixing quality, reduce the blending time and to abbreviate the energy-consuming.

AB  - This study presents the 51 mixtures of ceramic clays characterized by using XRF, XRD, granulometry, and dilatometry analyses. After firing in a 1000-1250 °C range, water absorption (WA) according to EN standards by boiling in water, under vacuum, and by 24 h soaking is determined. The results indicated that there was a high and statistically significant correlation between the standard methods, but the testing under vacuum gave the highest saturation of the samples fired at 1200 °C and 1250 °C. It is determined that these illitic-kaolinitic clays can be used to produce floor ceramic tiles belonging to the BIIa group (water absorption between 3% and 6%). The study also aimed to reveal which method of WA determination is suitable to read the sintering interval from the gresification diagrams, which is compared to the beginning of sintering as read from dilatometry curves.

AB  - A modification of an analytical procedure for the energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (EDXRF) quantification of ten chemical elements (As, Ba, Cd, Co, Cr, Cu, Mo, Ni, Pb and Zn) in the leachates obtained from cement binders was developed. Twenty-nine testing samples were used in the experiment. All samples were based on Portland cement. Fly ash of different origin, zeolite and bentonite were employed as mineral additives in the cement binders. Distilled water was used as the leachate. Validation of the modified EDXRF procedure was conducted in terms of limits of detection and quantification, working range, linearity, selectivity, precision, trueness, and robustness. Traceability of the procedure was established using certified reference materials. Uncertainty of measurement was confirmed via an "in-house" laboratory validation approach. The expanded uncertainties for the ten analysed elements were obtained for the entire working range of the EDXRF method. Robustness of the modified EDXRF procedure was assessed by means of a chemometric in-house approach. The results obtained by the modified X-ray fluorescence method were additionally correlated to those acquired by inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry to confirm that EDXRF could be used as an effective and reliable alternative method for analysis of cement leachates.

AB  - The optimal outputs of pyrophyllite mechano-chemical activation in an ultra-centrifugal mill performing under different technological conditions were determined by analytical modeling and verified via Artificial Neural Network in order to be employed in the production of cement-based binders. Cluster Analysis and Principal Component Analysis were utilized in assessment of the effect of activation process parameters on the activated pyrophyllite quality. Artificial Neural Network which performed with high prediction accuracy, i.e. 0.914 during the training period, was sufficient for precise prediction of activated pyrophyllite quality in a wide range of processing parameters. The probability of utilization of observed activation products was estimated through interrelation of technological parameters (mesh size sieve, activation period, specific energy consumption) and acquired characteristics of pyrophyllite (grain diameter, specific surface area). The optimal products singled out from each activation sequence were used as mineral additives in the mix-designs of four cement binders (cement replacement portion was 30%). Influence of activated pyrophyllite additions on the cement chemistry, mineral phase compositions and microstructures of the cement binders were monitored by instrumental techniques (DTA/TGA, XRD, SEM). Activated pyrophyllite showed characteristics of pozzolana as it slightly accelerated early stages of hydration, decreased cement hydration energy and increased the quantity of cement mineral alite at later hydration stages. Micron-sized crystalline foila characteristic for mechanically activated pyrophyllite formed micro-reinforcement within cement binder microstructure.

AB  - Mineral additives are extensively applied as cement replacement materials in both construction concrete and mortar. Fly ash is one of the most commonly utilized additives which improve Theological properties, as well as thermal and mechanical behavior of mortar, and as such it has been widely investigated. This industrial byproduct comprises heavy metals in its composition; therefore further research is needed to optimize its effective dosage. Moreover, certain sorptive clays, such as natural zeolite and bentonite, can prevent migration of toxic elements from fly ash by immobilizing them in their structure. Ten experimental mortars are prepared with Portland cement, river sand and addition of fly ash, zeolite and/or bentonite in accordance with chemometric experimental design rules. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of mineral additives on thermal and mechanical performances of mortar. Thermal characteristics were monitored via dilatometric analysis and DTA method. Principal component analysis was used on the results of physico-mechanical testing (workability, bulk density, water absorption, shrinkage, compressive and flexural strength) to enable the divisions of the observed samples into groups in the factor space. The performance of Artificial Neural Network was compared with the experimental data in order to develop rapid and accurate method for prediction of mechanical parameters of mortar. The ANN model showed high overall prediction accuracy (r(2) = 0.989, during training cycle). The test results indicate that incorporation of the mineral additives gave cost effective mortars with sufficiently good properties. However, tools of analytical modeling highlighted mortar with zeolite and fly ash as the optimal composition regarding its mechanical performance.

AB  - New global tendencies for waste materials reusing in building materials are imposing the request for improved performances of chemical analysis methods and the improvements of matrices used. A new method for optical emission spectrometry with inductively coupled plasma (ICP-OES) is developed and validated for the chemical analysis (35 elements: Al, Be, Cd, So, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo, Ni, V, Mo, Zn, Pb , Bi, Si, Zr, W, As, Se, Sb, Sn, Ti, Ba, B, Ag, Mg, Ca, K, Na, S, P, Ga, In, Li) in leachate of fly ash. Validation performances and the uncertainty of measurement were resolved. Uncertainty of measurements were resolved by three routes: validation procedure, participation in proficiency testing (PT) schemes and standard method. The obtained method is a new simple and effective analyzing route for determination of undesired trace elements and their quantity comprised in leachates of fly ash, and leachates of building materials with addition of fly ash (cement binders and mortars). In order to prove its accuracy and precision, the developed method was employed on laboratory samples of cement binders and mortars. Results were compared with limit values provided in the standard. Multivariate analyses, i.e. cluster analysis and principal component analysis, were applied to establish interrelations between analyzed samples, and to certify the developed ICP-OES method.

AB  - Adjustment and subsequent validation of energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence (ED-XRF) method for cement based binders with addition of mineral raw materials (fly ash, zeolite and bentonite) was conducted. Eighteen chemical elements present in the material composition were analyzed: ten major elements (Si, Al, Fe, Ca, Mg, S, Na, K, Ti, P) and eight trace elements (Cr, Zn, Cu, As, Ni, Pb, Sr, Mn). Thirty-five samples of either certified reference materials or reference materials of cement, fly ash and clay were utilized during adjustment and optimization of the investigated ED-XRF procedure. The method was consecutively validated in terms of selectivity, precision, working range, linearity, accuracy, robustness, limits of detection and quantification. Thirty-two samples in total, i.e. three certified reference materials and twenty-nine reference materials, were simultaneously analyzed by ED-XRF and inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES). Comparison of the outputs of monitored methods showed infinitesimally small differences, as correlation coefficients were extremely good (approximate to 1), which highlighted ED-XRF as highly satiable alternative for ICP-OES for the chemical analysis of cement binders.

AB  - The effectiveness of employment of mechano-chemical activation in the production of high temperature ceramic coating materials was assessed. The properties of mineral fillers are directly dependant on the choice of activation variables. Mathematical modeling was employed for optimization of ultra-centrifugal pulverization and determination of optimal characteristics of investigated materials. The properties of treated resources were mathematically correlated to the variations in their granulometry. The dependencies between the set of the activation parameters and characteristics of a material were mathematically modeled and estimated. Chemometric methods were employed in the calculations. The samples are classified by Principal Component Analysis, while comprehensive comparison between analyzed samples was achieved by Response Surface Method and Standard Score. Mathematical models predict the quality parameters of activated powders with high accuracy in a broad range of processing parameters. The r2 values were in the range from 0.71 to 0.98 for established models for processing of talc, mica, fly ash and alumina powders. The set of processing parameters related to the 120 Μm sieve mesh size was selected as optimal procedure with acquired standard score values 0.7 for mica, 1.0 for talc, 0.9 for fly ash and alumina. Optimal processing parameters can diminish the negative effect of raw materials inherent properties on the target score, which in return enhances energetic and economic sustainability of the mechano-chemical activation of resource materials utilized in the production of ceramic coating materials.

Coal combustion ash was utilized as pozzolanic mineral additive. The binders' mix-design was supplemented with sorptive clays to prevent migration of toxic elements from fly ash.

Mathematical tools employed data sets of instrumental analyses to form a clear differentiation between binders and to assess changes caused by adoption of mineral additives in the mix designs. Sorptive clays showed pozzolanic behavior, thereby causing no incapacitation to the cement hydration mechanism, and classifying as a possible economical resources which can be used in production technology of construction materials to redeem environmental pollution issues of building industry.

AB  - Fokus ove studije je na biometrijsku klasifikaciju biljaka, biljnih organa, lokaliteta i vremena uzorkovanja, u smislu praćenja stepena usvajanja toksičanih (As, Cd, Hg i Pb) i esencijalnih elemenata (Cu i Zn), i mogućnost primene u fito-remedijaciji. Stepen usvajanja elemenata zavisi od biljne vrste i njenih morfoloških i fizioloških osobina. Usvajanje toksičnih i esencijalnih elemenata u ovom radu je praćeno kod tri vrste biljaka (podbel, maslačak i kopriva). Uzorkovanje biljaka i zemljišta je vršeno u priobalnom regionu Kriveljske reke, Srbija. Analiza glavnih komponenti i analiza varijanse su korišćene za procenu efekasnosti usvajanja toksičnih i esencijalnih elemenata kod pomenutih biljnih vrsta, biljnih organa (korena, stabla i lišća), lokaliteta i vremena uzorkovanja (april, maj, jun). Dobijeni rezultati su pokazali da je razlika u usvajanju toksičnih i esencijalnih elemenata najviše zavisi od sorte i tipova biljnih organa. Biometrijske tehnike pružaju mogućnost za bolje razumevanje ponašanja biljaka i dobijanja mnogo korisnih informacija iz izvornih podataka.
AB  - The focus of this study is on the biometric classification of plants, plant organs, sampling sites and sampling time, in terms of toxic (As, Cd, Hg and Pb) and essential elements (Cu and Zn) monitoring, and possible the application in phyto-remediation. The degree of adoption of elements depends on the plant species and its morphological and physiological properties, therefore the adoption of toxic and essential elements in three plant species (coltsfoot, dandelion and nettles) was investigated. Vegetation experiments were carried out in the coastal region of river Kriveljska, Serbia. Principal component analysis and analysis of variance were used for assessing the effect of plant types, plant organs (root, shoot and leaves), and sampling sites and sampling time (April, May, June) on toxic and essential elements uptake. Obtained results showed that a difference in toxic and essential elements uptake depends mostly upon the cultivar and the plant organ types. Biometric techniques provided a good opportunity for a better understanding the behaviour of plants and obtaining much more useful information from the original data.

AB  - This research describes a study of 11 selected samples of brick clays applied in roofing tile production, by using simultaneous thermal analysis. Additionally, the laboratory-sized samples were prepared and fired (850-950 degrees C) and technological properties were determined. Mathematical analysis was applied to sum all the experimental results and help discriminate the samples by their behavior during firing. The samples, very similar according to mineralogical and chemical content, as well as granulometry tests, were successfully grouped using principal component analysis (PCA). The PCA was used to explore and easily visualize the differences between samples. The PCA performed for differential thermal analysis (DTA), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and differential thermogravimetry (DTG) curves clearly showed that the heat flow was mainly influenced by carbonate content and its grain size, while DTG discriminated samples according to the contents of clay minerals and carbonates. In addition, dilatometry analysis revealed which samples underwent the highest densification during the firing process. The PCA analysis of fired products properties showed that the highest correlations were between water absorption with firing shrinkage and compressive strength.

AB  - The main idea of this research was to evaluate rice and sunflower hulls, sawdust and their ashes, as additives in clay brick production using mathematical analysis. All available papers, containing the parameters of interest, were used in the study, which consisted of total 316 cases, obtained from the literature. The major oxide content of clays and mixtures, then weight percent addition and particle size ranges of secondary raw materials, and process parameters (firing temperature, soaking time and average heating rate) were selected as inputs to mathematical models. Shaping moist was the only parameter characterizing transition state of the products analyzed as an output parameter. The other parameters described the fired product quality: linear shrinkage, bulk density, water absorption, compressive and bending strength. The main goal was to find the relationships and the main influences between raw material properties, process parameters, and the quality of the obtained products and mixtures, by using mathematical tools. Statistical and mathematical analyses were applied for prediction of final product quality. Developed artificial neural network empirical models (ANNs) give a reasonable fit to experimental data and successfully predict the most of the observed output variables, showing the good prediction capabilities (coefficient of determination varied between 0.714 and 0.998). Sensitivity analysis showed that, among all the studied parameters concerning raw materials and process parameters, the dominant influence belonged to loss on ignition.

AB  - In this paper, five types of horizontal single-pitch screw conveyors with modified geometry, with three different lengths (400, 600 and 800 mm) were investigated for transport and auxiliary mixing action of two materials: natural zeolite and quartz aggregate (sand) with particle sizes 3, 4 and 5 mm. The geometry of the screw transporter is changed by welding three additional helices oriented in the same or the opposite direction from screw cutting edges, enabling the premixing of materials, during the transport. The proper mixing of the observed materials provides an adequate disposition of zeolite particles within the composite and prevents agglomeration and interference with cement hydration. Zeolite application as a binder in a building material is a possible solution to environmental pollution problems caused by cement production. The influences of screw length, particle diameter, the studied geometry variations of screw design, on the mixing performances of the screw conveyor-mixer during material transport were explored. All investigations were performed experimentally and numerically, by using Discrete Element Method (DEM). The experimental results and the results of the DEM investigation were used for the development of mathematical models for the prediction of mixing quality, which are presented in the form of second order polynomial and artificial neural network model.

AB  - The effect of the combined actions of milling and hydrophobization procedures applied in construction composites synthesis was investigated. The mortars were prepared with cement (CEM I 42.5) and calcite aggregate complying the standard 1:3 mix ratio. The limestone filler (10 wt%) was added to the mixture upon its mechano-chemical activation in an ultra-centrifugal mill. The activation variables (milling time, rotor velocity, sieve mesh size) were altered to achieve the optimal quality of the powder. The treatment was optimized via chemometric tools. The r(2) values (0.955-0.998) of second order polynomial models accurately predicted the output and the Standard score analysis chose the optimal activation parameters: 4.25 min; 48.58 m/s and 80 gm sieve. The selected filler and all three aggregate fractions were coated with stearic acid via dry procedure. The mortar mixes, prepared with uncoated (M1) and coated (M2) aggregate and filler, were cured for a period of 28 days during which compressive strength and water absorption were monitored. The dimensional changes in mortars were estimated via TMA dilatometer measurements. Thermo-analytical methods (DTA/TGA) were applied in the thermal behavior analysis. Mineralogical and morphological changes in the structure of hardened composite were detected by XRD and SEM, respectively. Limestone aggregate led to lower final compressive strengths in mortar, but it produced an infinitesimally small shrinkage at 1000 degrees C. The hydrophobization via stearic acid initiated the decrease in water absorption and formation of needle-like micro-network that filled structural voids reducing open porosity. The assessment of the effects of limestone utilization as a filler and as an aggregate on the mortar performances confirmed that this novel water-repellent composite is applicable in structural design.

The mortars were prepared with cement (CEM I 42.5) and calcite aggregate complying the standard 1:3 mix ratio. The limestone filler (10 wt%) was added to the mixture upon its mechano-chemical activation in an ultra-centrifugal mill. The activation variables (milling time, rotor velocity, sieve mesh size) were altered to achieve the optimal quality of the powder. The treatment was optimized via chemometric tools. The r(2) values (0.955-0.998) of second order polynomial models accurately predicted the output and the Standard score analysis chose the optimal activation parameters: 4.25 min; 48.58 m/s and 80 gm sieve. The selected filler and all three aggregate fractions were coated with stearic acid via dry procedure. The mortar mixes, prepared with uncoated (M1) and coated (M2) aggregate and filler, were cured for a period of 28 days during which compressive strength and water absorption were monitored. The dimensional changes in mortars were estimated via TMA dilatometer measurements. Thermo-analytical methods (DTA/TGA) were applied in the thermal behavior analysis. Mineralogical and morphological changes in the structure of hardened composite were detected by XRD and SEM, respectively. Limestone aggregate led to lower final compressive strengths in mortar, but it produced an infinitesimally small shrinkage at 1000 degrees C. The hydrophobization via stearic acid initiated the decrease in water absorption and formation of needle-like micro-network that filled structural voids reducing open porosity. The assessment of the effects of limestone utilization as a filler and as an aggregate on the mortar performances confirmed that this novel water-repellent composite is applicable in structural design.",

AB  - The properties of seven montmorillonite-rich bentonites of different geological origin were investigated prior and subsequent to mechano-chemical processing in an ultra-centrifugal mill. The objective of the experiment was altering the bentonite types and activation parameters in order to determine the optimal milling conditions that produce material which is physico-mechanically and microstructurally applicable as a binder replacement and sorbent in the construction composites. The efficiency of bentonite activation was assessed by chemometrics and Artificial neural networks mathematical modeling. Principal component analysis and analysis of variance were used in the observation of the influence of input variables (bentonite chemical composition) and process parameters (milling duration, rotor velocity) on the product characteristics: density, specific surface area, grain size and distribution, cation exchange capacity, melting point, compressive strength, shrinkage and porosity. When the ANN models for the observed responses, related to predicted bentonite characteristics and quality, were compared to experimental results, they correctly predicted the responses. The processed data also adequately fitted to the regression second order polynomial models. The SOP models, which showed r(2) values from 0.357 to 0.948, and were able to predict the observed responses in a wide range of processing parameters, while ANN models performed high prediction accuracy (0.776-0.901) and can be considered as precise for response variables prediction. The combination of the conducted mathematical analyses showed that that increase/decrease in output values was stabilized after 30 min of activation. Mathematically attained interpretations were correlated with the results of the instrumental analyses (XRD, DTA/TG, SEM) to confirm the adoption of B6 bentonite as a preferable type and 30 min as an optimal milling time for acquiring quality of clay powder that will be used in structural and thermal applications.
