AB  - This research studies the effects of composition and granulometry analysis of 139 heavy clays on the important characteristics of wet and adobe clay bricks. ANN models were obtained with high prediction accuracy in training cycles (r(2)): 0.580-0.907. Standard score analysis (SS) is performed to evaluate the optimal content of raw materials to gain adobe bricks. Optimal macro-oxides content was 53-66% SiO2, 4.6-7.5% Fe2O3, 12.5-18.2% Al2O3, 0.9-8.8% CaO, 1.2-3.6% MgO. The optimal quantity of alevrolite-sized particles varied between 46 and 65%, and clay-sized particles contents ranged from 20.4 to 40.6%.

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 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.

AB  - The coal fly ash mechano-chemical activation conducted via high energy ultra-centrifugal mill was optimized using mathematical and statistical tools. The aim of the investigation was to accent the merits of alternations in ash processing schemes with a referral regarding the enhancement of the ash reactivity that will lead to its higher volume utilization as a cement replacement in concrete design. The impact of the processing parameters sets (number of rotor revolutions, current intensity, activation period, circumferential rotor speed, mill capacity) on the on the product's quality factors (grain size distribution, average grain size, micronization level, agglomeration tendency, specific surface area) was assessed via Response surface method, Standard score analysis and Principal component analysis in order to obtain the most favorable output. Developed models were able to meticulously predict quality parameters in an extensive range of processing parameters. The calculated r(2) values were in the range of 0.846-0.999. The optimal ash sample, that reached the Standard Score as high as 0.93, was produced using a set of processing parameters appropriate to experimental sequence with applied 120 mu m sieve mesh. The microstructural characteristics were assessed using image-processing values and histogram plots of the activated fly ash SEM images.

AB  - Natural zeolites of clinoptilolite type from seven deposits were submitted to mechano-chemical activation in a Retsch ultra -centrifugal mill. The zeolite types and activation parameters were altered during the experiment with an aim to determine the optimal combination that would produce powder with adequate physico-chemical and microstructural properties for application as a binder replacement and an ion -exchanger in the construction composites. The effects of input variables (chemical composition of the samples) and process parameters (the rotor velocity and the activation period) on the efficiency of zeolite activation were investigated in terms of dependent parameters such as: specific surface area, grain size distribution, cation exchange capacity, melting point, compression strength, shrinking, water absorption and apparent porosity. Cluster analysis, Principal component analysis and Standard score analysis were applied in the assessment of the acquired product quality. Artificial neural networks (ANN) were developed in mathematical modeling of observed responses. Subsequently the ANN was compared to experimental results and the developed second order polynomial models. Developed models showed r(2) values in the 0.822-0.998 range, meaning that they were able to predict the observed responses in a wide range of processing parameters. ANN models performed high prediction accuracy (0.975-0.993) and can be considered as precise and very useful for response variables prediction. The combination of the conducted mathematical analyses isolated Z5 zeolite as a preferable type, and 20000 rpm and 30 min as an optimal activation set of parameters. Mathematically derived conclusions were confirmed by results of instrumental analyses (XRD, DTA/TG, SEM).

AB  - The limestone, as an economically sustainable and easily available basic raw material, is frequently utilized in the building industry for resolving of the environmental protection issues. The limestone is incorporated in a cementitious system either by grinding with cement clinker, or by blending with the binder during concrete production. The employing of powdery limestone as partial cement replacement gives the construction composites with properties comparable to that of conventional concrete. The study of limestone thermal behavior and its chemistry is crucial for the prognosis of the designed composites properties. In this work, the instrumental techniques (atomic emission spectroscopy, differential thermal and thermo-gravimetric analysis, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) and the Principal component analysis were employed to discriminate and classify 22 limestone types. The PCA statistical method, as a means of spectra and experimental data fingerprinting, grouped the samples in a multi-dimensional factor space producing four graphical prognosis - one for each instrumental method. DTA/TG peak values varied the most in a short range between 830-870 degrees C, while FTIR spectra showed the highest diversity in the 867-887 cm(-1) and 1237-1647 cm(-1) ranges. This research was governed by an idea to reveal whether it is possible to differentiate various limestone types and to predict the possibility of their employment in construction composites on the basis of the results of instrumental and mathematical analyses.

AB  - The objective of this study was to investigate utilization potential of organic and inorganic industrial wastes in clay bricks. Mineral composition of starting heavy clay sample is tested using an X-ray diffractometer. Chemical content and loss on ignition were determined in sludges, coal dust, fly and landfill ashes, soybean crust, sawdust, sunflower hulls and their ash. Different ratios of wastes were added to heavy clay, while the applied firing temperatures were in the range 850-1000 degrees C. The laboratory samples (tiles, solid bricks and hollow blocks) were tested by using the standard test methods. Changes in product's quality were studied in terms of relative differences to ceramic-technological parameters compared to samples without waste materials addition. It is noticed that all of the additives increased weight loss, firing shrinkage and water absorption, while decreasing compressive strength and volume mass. The greatest changes in performances were observed with addition of organic materials, whereas, among them, sunflower hulls initiated the lowest compressive strength. Inorganic additives introduced fewer changes to fired products, while fly ash caused the lowest decrease in compressive strength. Response Surface Methodology (RSM) was applied and Second Order Polynomial models (SOP) were used to show the effects of firing temperature, waste materials addition and their quantity on characteristics of fired products. High prediction accuracy was obtained, with coefficient of determination in the range of 0.896-0.999. It was concluded that all of the analyzed materials can generally be used in building bricks by taking advantage of low cost and environmental protection, whereby thermal conductivity decreases.

AB  - The effects of organic and inorganic waste sludges, coal dust, fly and landfill ashes, soybean crust, sawdust, sunflower flakes and their ash addition to representative heavy clay were investigated. Changes introduced to shaping moist (SM), shrinkage (Delta Sk) and weight loss (Delta Gk) in Bigot's curve critical point, and plasticity coefficient (PC) by Pfefferkorn were studied. The highest sensitivity to drying showed samples with coal dust addition, while the greatest plasticity and shaping moist was detected in samples with 50 wt% of fly and landfill ashes. The influence of waste material used, its' content and also firing temperature were independent parameters that influenced compressive strength, water absorption, firing shrinkage, weight loss during firing and volume mass as dependent parameters. Second order polynomial mathematical models predicted fired products characteristics, and Were later used to determine the optimum conditions by Response Surface Method (RSM), coupled with Fuzzy Synthetic Evaluation algorithm (FSE), using trapezoidal function. The choice of the parameters optimal interval that characterized fired products (water absorption, compressive strength, weight loss during firing, firing shrinkage and volume mass), depended on a final usage of the raw material in heavy clay brick industry. The optimization results showed that sunflower hulls, wood sawdust, soybean husks and saturation sludge are best to be used in solid bricks production. Coal dust, landfill ashes and neutralization (inorganic) sludges are best to be used in hollow bricks production. Sunflower hulls ash can be added in higher quantity to heavy clay to produce blocks or in lower quantity in roof tiles. Fly ashes addition of 50 wt% allows roof tiles production. The optimal temperature for solid bricks and hollow blocks production is found to be 900-950 degrees C.

AB  - Chemical composition and XRD qualitative analysis were used to calculate mineral contents of 139 brick clay raw materials using LPNORM. The second order polynomial models (SOP) for all the samples, which express the relation between mineral contents and the characteristics of fired laboratory products, did not fit to experimental data satisfactorily, due to low coefficients of determination (r(2)). In order to improve the models, the samples are divided into four groups in factor space (four quadrants), according to their mineral content similarity, using principal component analysis (PCA). Predictive models of compressive strength (CS), water absorption (WA), firing shrinkage (FS), weight loss during firing (WLF) and volume mass of cubes (VMC) are obtained for each of the groups. Second order polynomial (SOP) models are developed, and the influence of certain minerals to brick clay bricks quality within the groups is discussed. Developed models were able to predict the final quality of products in a wide range of mineral content and temperature treatment data, showing coefficient of determination (r(2)) in range between 0.704-0.995. In order to estimate the adequacy of these models, the results were applied to the experimental data and compared according to additional statistical tests, so the next values are determined: coefficients of determination, reduced chi-square (chi(2)), mean bias error (MBE), mean percent error (MPE) and root mean square error (RMSE).

AB  - Talc is broadly used in the ceramic materials industry, either as a basic raw material, or as filler, due to its chemical inertia, fragmentation proneness, thermal stability, and refractoriness. The mechanical activation is frequently employed in the direct enhancement of talc properties, and thereby in the design of talc based composites with advanced performances. The differences in the set of the process parameters measured before and after talc activation via ultra-centrifugal mill Retsch ZM-1, and their influence on the grain-size distribution related characteristics have been investigated. The mechanical treatments are energetically unsustainable procedures, therefore the talc activation was optimized on basis of assessment of the process variables (number of rotor revolutions, current intensity, activation period, circumferential rotor speed and mill capacity) effect on the final quality of product parameters (mesh sizes, cumulative oversizes, average grain size, level of micronization kinetics, mesh size appropriate to 95% micronized product cumulative undersize and specific surface area). The activated product parameters in all experimental sequences were obtained by the analytical procedure based on Rosin-Rammler-Sperling equation. Response surface method, standard score analysis and principal component analysis were used as a means of the optimization. Developed models showed r(2) values in the range of 0.714-0.908 and they were able to accurately predict quality parameters in a wide range of process parameters. Standard score analysis highlighted that the optimal sample was obtained using sieve mesh of 120 mu m set of processing parameters (SS = 1.0). Multiple comparison tests revealed that the optimal variation in the processing parameters could reduce the negative effect of talc samples inherent properties on the final score and improve the activation procedure energetic and economic sustainability.

AB  - The effect of the application of pelletized fly ash based aggregates obtained through different processing techniques on the behavior of lightweight concretes was analyzed. Experimental program implied production of four lightweight artificial aggregates-cold bonded and sintered pellets based on either mechanically activated or non-activated low-calcium fly ash and water glass. The lightweight concrete behavior was compared to that of normal-weight concrete through compressive strength, flexural strength, porosity, shrinkage, and modulus of elasticity investigation. Differences in concretes characteristics were discussed with SEM imagining support. The statistical analysis of lightweight aggregate and ash properties contribution on concrete performances was realized by analysis variance model (ANOVA). Optimal production combination that maximizes lightweight concrete performance was determined by employing response surface methodology. An increase in concrete strength induced by the increase in ash fineness was noticed. Mechanical activation also had effect on the pellets sintering period and sintering temperature reduction. The 28- and 56-day lightweight concrete specimens exhibited properties that met the requirements for normal-weight concretes. Finally, the ideal combinations of ash pellets production parameters and properties that gave the lightweight concrete with behavior matching to that of standard concrete were established. The production capability of lightweight concrete with advanced performances based on artificial aggregate approves the principle of waste material reusing and enables cleaner and economically sustainable concrete manufacturing procedure.

The Standard Score Analysis emphasized that the optimal output sample was obtained using a sieve mesh of 120 mu m set of processing parameters (SS=0.96). Diverse comparison analyses disclosed that the optimal set of activation process parameters could reduce the negative effect of gamma-alumina samples immanent properties on the final score, and furthermore to enhance the rate of gamma to alpha transition which would improve energetic and economic sustainability of the alumina phase transformation procedure.

AB  - Mineralogical composition of heavy clays is one of the most important properties when stadying raw materials in brick industry. Within this study, quantitative determination of minerals using LPNORM calculation was performed, using the first algorithm among the so-called norms that allows the introduction of a list of minerals and their configuration. This algorithm is implemented for the first time in practice, in order to calculate the minerals content in brick raw materials. The influence of minerals quantity, along with the firing temperature (800-1100 degrees C), and several shape formats of laboratory brick samples were investigated, and the acquired data were used to build Artificial Neural Network (ANN) model. ANN model was developed in order to predict the final products parameters, and its results have been afterwards compared to experimental data. ANN model, coupled with sensitivity analysis, was obtained with high prediction accuracy, according to coefficient of determination, r(2): 0.880-0.884 in compressive strength calculation, 0.954-0.960 for water absorption, 0.869 for firing shrinkage, 0.979-0.984 for water loss during firing and 0.907 for volume mass of cubes model.

AB  - This paper describes a study of 11 selected samples of loess soil from Serbia, by using differential scanning calorimetry, simultaneously with thermogravimetry and its differential calculation, known as simultaneous thermal analysis (STA). This survey is supplemented by chemical and mineralogical analysis, particle size distribution, and plasticity and drying susceptibility tests. Correlation analysis of major oxides content and certain technological test results were used for better understanding of the raw material composition and product physical properties. The results indicate that the samples were rich in carbonates, with the highest content of alevrite fraction and variable content of clay-sized particles. Mineralogical analysis confirms significant correlations between major oxides content and reveals that the most common non-clay mineral present is quartz, followed by calcite, dolomite and sodium feldspar. Major clay minerals include illite, chlorite, smectite and, in some cases, low quantities of kaolinite. Although STA method is well-known, this is the first time that it was used for discussion about its practical aspect, for characterization of the loess deposits, in terms of exploitation in brick industry.

AB  - The need of testing the quality of brickclay arises in all brick factories, with the opening of new deposits. The analyses are both time and economically consuming, so the aim of this study was to shorten the procedure using the already known data. This study was focused on determining the usability of heavy clays, when only the raw material major elements chemical composition is determined. The effects of chemical composition, firing temperature, and several shape formats of laboratory samples on the final properties were investigated. Chemical composition of major elements was determined on the basis of classical silicate analysis. Firing was conducted in an oxidizing atmosphere, while maintaining all other experimental conditions constant, except the final temperature. Principal component analysis (PCA) was used to determinate groups of samples according to similarity of chemical composition. Prediction of compressive strength (CS) and water absorption (WA) was done by developing five artificial neural networks (ANN). The average regression coefficients r(2) were used to explore the confidence level of the models. Developed models were able to predict CS and WA in a wide range of chemical composition and temperature treatment data, and the highest average r(2) of 0.923 for CS was obtained, while r(2) for WA was 0.958. The wide range of processing variables was considered in the model formulation, and its easy implementation in a spreadsheet using a set of equations makes it very useful and practical for CS and WA prediction. As it is known from literature, all the parameters entered this analysis are dependent on each other, but their mutual relationship was not quantified yet. Most importantly-the developed neural networks can be used on a global scale.

AB  - Loess clays are commonly used to produce bricks. Heavy clays, taken at location near Zrenjanin, Serbia, are used as a representative raw material in this study. The sample, containing about 28% of clay sized particles, is enriched using two more plastic heavy clays from neighboring locations. Chemical and mineralogical content of clays is determined, as well as particle size distribution. Optimization of the processing parameters during the bricks production, i. e. temperature (900-1100 degrees C), and concentration of 2 clays combined addition (both in the range of 0-10%), is done based on the following independent parameters: compressive strength (CS), water absorption (WA), firing shrinkage (FS), weight loss during firing (WLF) and apparent density expressed as volume mass of cubes (VMC). Developed models showed r(2) values in the range of 0.822-0.998, and they were able to accurately predict CS, WA, FS, WLF and VMC in a wide range of processing parameters. The optimum conditions are determined by the response surface method (RSM), coupled with the fuzzy synthetic evaluation (FSE) algorithm, using membership trapezoidal function, with defined optimal interval values, depending on a final usage of the raw material in heavy clay brick industry.

AB  - Compressive strength and water absorption of fired heavy clay products varies with firing temperatures, but not entirely according to linear function, as it is mostly reported in literature. Also, differential thermo-gravimetric curve shows many turnovers in all the samples tested, within observed temperature range (820-920 degrees C). The aim of this research was to find a cause for such behaviour. Except derivative weight (DW), compressive strength (CS) and water absorption (WA) are chosen as outputs that represent properties of the fired samples. These parameters can be calculated using second order polynomial models (SOPs), on the basis of content of major oxides and firing temperature, as shown in our previous research. Sensitivity analysis was used as the effective approach in testing changes observed in the SOP outputs, due to the variation of content of major oxides for +1% or -1% of their nominal value. This study reveals in more detail the most significant influence of inputs (SiO2, Al2O3, Fe2O3 and CaO content) over the outputs (DW, CS and WA) in every observed firing temperature. Addition or lowering of content of major oxides can both increase and decrease all the observed outputs, as revealed using sensitivity analysis.

AB  - Many factors influence final clay brick properties, since the raw materials used are highly heterogeneous. Statistical analysis is rarely used, according to literature, but it would improve understanding of the overall system behavior and the quality of products. In this study, analysis of variance (ANOVA) showed that the most important parameters influencing compressive strength (CS) were the quadratic terms of firing temperature, CaO and SiO2 content in developed second order polynomial (SOP) models. Water absorption (WA) was mostly influenced by quadratic terms of CaO and SiO2. The most influential interchange terms in all the models were SiO2 x CaO, SiO2 x Na2O, Fe2O3 x Na2O, CaO x Na2O and CaO x K2O. Developed SOP models, which connected the influence of major oxides content and firing temperature on CS and WA, showed the highest r(2) values (0.926-0.967) obtained in the literature so far, for these naturally occurring heavy clay raw materials. Developed models were able to predict CS and WA in a wide range of chemical composition and temperature treatment data. The implementation of the SOP model is simple using the set of equations in a spreadsheet. The focus of this study was to determine the optimal composition and firing temperature, depending on final usage of the raw material in heavy clay brick industry. The study was conducted using fuzzy synthetic evaluation, through membership trapezoidal function, with pre-defined optimal interval values for every group of heavy clay products. The optimal samples chemical composition and firing temperature were chosen regarding the kind of the heavy clay product (I-solid bricks, II-hollow blocks and ceiling elements, and III-roof tiles).
