Possibities to increase the frost resistance of brick body
Keršner, Štěpán ; Šveda,, Mikuláš (referee) ; Sokolář, Radomír (advisor)
This thesis, which comprises of a theoretical and a practical part, deals with possible means of increasing ceramic body frost resistance. The current state of research in the field of ceramic body frost resistance is summarized in the theoretical part. The practical part is divided into two sections. In the first section, the influence of firing temperature (820 °C and 1020 °C) and duration (2, 4 and 6 hours) on frost resistance and several other parameters is assessed by means of experiment, using a specimen of brick body made of mixes currently used in roof tile production by TONDACH Šlapanice and TONDACH Dolní Jirčany factories. In the second section of the practical part, two modifications are introduced of the mixture currently used in roof tile production in the TONDACH Šlapanice factory – GE clay and zeolite supplements were added, the effects of which are verified by means of experiment using specimens fired in a kiln designated for ceramic masonry blocks and alternatively in a kiln used for firing TONDACH Šlapanice roof tiles.
Fly ash of class C for ceramic technology
Keršnerová, Lucie ; Šveda,, Mikuláš (referee) ; Rovnaníková, Pavla (referee) ; Všianský,, Dalibor (referee) ; Sokolář, Radomír (advisor)
This thesis is focused on the possibilities of the utilization of the fludized fly ash in ceramic technology, especially in the field of brick manufacturing and ceramic tiles. There were used fly ashes from thermal power plants in Hodonín, Ledvice and Tisová. Fluidized fly ash can be used for manufacturing of building materials. There hasn’t been done extensive research in this area. One of the problem is sulphur dioxide leakage during burning. The work describes the behaviour of fluidized ash during firing. The attention is focused on air pollution of sulphur dioxide. The production of SO2 is controlled so that the aim of the work is to find a way how to avoid leaking. It was proved that addition of sodium ions causes the formation of minerals hauyne and nosean during firing. Also is described the behaviour of the fly ash-soil mixtures. The anhydrite decomposition temperature is lower than in pure fly ash. In the end is fluidized ash applied for the production of dry pressed ceramic tiles. This ash can be used in ceramic technology. However, despite the interesting results there are number of problems that need to be solved.
Development and research of elements of ceramic masonry systems for areas with increased risk of floods
Novák, Vítězslav ; Černý,, Robert (referee) ; Dobiáš,, Jiří (referee) ; Sokolář, Radomír (referee) ; Zach, Jiří (advisor)
One of the most widespread causes of building deterioration is high moisture, which in extreme cases may even arrive as floods. The action of high moisture in a structure often results in damage or alteration of properties, but it can be mitigated with various protective measures, most commonly waterproofing. However, the efficacy of waterproofing depends of flawless implementation. Another effective form of protection against high moisture is the correct choice of location, but the number of suitable construction plots is rapidly decreasing or their price is too high. This is why new construction, particularly family homes, now occurs even in locations known for the increased risk of high moisture. This doctoral thesis focuses on the research and development of the most common masonry systems with structural clay tiles designed to withstand application in flood areas thanks to the special properties of the individual elements, components, and the system as a whole.

Plasters modified by burnt clays
Soukupová, Eva ; Příhoda,, Jiří (referee) ; Sokolář, Radomír (referee) ; Michoinová,, Dagmar (referee) ; Rovnaníková, Pavla (advisor)
The doctoral thesis deals with the reactivity of burnt clays in connection with modified lime mortars. The theoretical part of the doctoral thesis provides an overview of the properties of lime mortars, their quality and ways of their degradation. The different types of burnt clays (brick powder, bentonites and burnt clay shale), their origin, properties and factors affecting their reactivity and methods of its evaluation are stated. The properties and reactivity of burnt clays are evaluated on the basis of determination of pozzolanic activity, mineralogical and chemical composition, surface area, density, content of the amorphous phase and granulometry in the experimental part of the doctoral thesis. The compositions of lime mortars containing burnt clays and evaluation of an impact of burnt clay on the properties of mortars in the fresh and hardened state are given. Consistency, bulk density, workability and air content of mortars in the fresh state are evaluated. Strength characteristics depending on the time, water absorbability, porosity, capillary attraction, adhesion, coefficient of diffusion resistance, frost resistance, shrinkage, mineralogical composition and microstructure of mortars in the hardened state are evaluated. Attention is also paid to the influence of the cellulose ether addition into the modified lime mortars.
The Effect of Quartz Sand and Feldspar Granulometry on the Sintering of Porcelain Body
Bajer, Tomáš ; Nevřivová, Lenka (referee) ; Sokolář, Radomír (advisor)
Properties of quartz and feldspar as two most used fundamental materials for porcelain production have significant effect on final technical properties of the product. Generally, it is considered the finer the materials the better the end product’s properties. The degree, to which particle size distribution influences these properties and the reason why, is summarized in this paper. At the end, practical tests were performed to confirm the gathered information.
Characterization of brick clays for the production of THERM bricks
Svobodová, Markéta ; Stančík,, Hynek (referee) ; Sokolář, Radomír (advisor)
The Bachelor´s thesis is focused on the comparison of brick claysthat arecalcium and non-calcium and then it determines which of these brick clays are suitable for production of thin wall thermal insulating fittings called THERM. The main influence has CaO contained in the calcium brick clay in the form of calcite. In the theoretical part you can find an overview of the brick clays in the Czech Republic and abroad then requirements for clays and laboratory testing of bricks. In the practical part of the work were performed tests on samples of brick clays used in the Czech Republic. Mineralogical composition differenceis obviousafter firing the brick clays.This difference is caused by occurrence of anorthite calcium brick clay which then reflects in the usefulproperty of brick shard. Based on these tests I make evaluationof the most suitable type of brick clay for processing the THERM fittings.
