We report the first measurements of mass gain and expansive strain in clay ceramics immediately following firing. The results show that both mass gain and expansive strain follow a well defined two-stage process, each stage of which is linear with (time) 1/4 , with a transition from the first to the second stage commencing at t ∼ 1.5 h. The first stage mass gain and strain rates are ∼3.5 times greater than the second stage rates. The strain is found to show the same linear relationship withdoi:10.1088/0022-3727/41/5/055402 fatcat:cig6xb7vfbhvfpwqcwcybosmn4
