Özet

Local and conventional raw materials from Adana, Eskisehir, and Istanbul in Turkey have been used together with massive basalt, weathered basalt, and pumice in two separate experiments to test their suitability for the production of ceramics. Modulus of rupture tests and porosity measurements in the first experiment using the massive and weathered basalts revealed increases with increasing amounts of smaller pores and decreasing amount of smectite, Increasing amounts of kaolinite were found to cause the decrease of large pol es. In the second experiment with pumice, psuedowollastonite, a refractory mineral formed together with complete vitrification by using the smectite free kaolinite and illite rich clay deposits found in Osmaniye-Adana.
