Description

Ceramic bricks are used all over the world to help build stoves but can prove to be inefficient because of their inability to hold heat, individuals are required to use more fuel that can create harmful fumes. In order to address this a team comprised of teachers and engineers, designed and tested an experiment that used multiple different organic materials that were added to bricks to increase insinuative properties by producing more pores in the bricks. These organic bricks were then heat treated then were tested through three-point bend, compression, and porosity tests to determine if adding organic material would create more pores to increase insinuative properties without jeopardizing the overall strength of the brick.
