    The goalGoal of the course is to provide students with knowledge about dependence between structure, properties, processing and applications of ceramic materials. In addition, this course introduces the students to processing of traditional and advanced ceramics. By favour of knowledge obtained at this course, students will be able to understand and improve processes for ceramic production.
    The outcomeGaining knowledge about structure of ceramic materials and methods of ceramic production, that will enable self-management and improvement of technological processes of ceramic production.
    Contents of lecturesThe course analyzes structure of ceramic materials and processes in technological scheme of traditional and advanced ceramic production: structure of traditional and advanced ceramic materials, structure deffects, raw materials preparation for traditional ceramics; chemical synthesis of advanced ceramic materials; forming processes: casting of fluid suspension, plastic forming and pressing; draying in ceramic technology; sintering of traditional and advanced ceramic materials; dryers and furnaces in ceramic tehnology; glazes.
    Contents of exercisesDetermination of particle size distribution, Determination of specific surface area of powder, Diferential-thermal analysis of raw materials for traditional ceramics, Ceramic mass forming by extrusion and by hand throwing, Determination of strenght of dry and fired ceramic bodies, Ceramic material analysis by heating microscope, Measuring of porosity of ceramic bodies, Fritted glazes preparation and glazing ceramic bodies, Measurement of glaze stresses, SEM of traditional and advanced ceramics, X-ray diffraction analysis of ceramic materials.
