Mathematical Correlations between Properties of Brick / in a Dried State (Part 1)
Keywords:brick, physical properties, pore structure, mathematical functions, dried state.
In the first part of this work the relationships between physical properties of brick body are evaluated. These
relationships are expressed by mathematical functions – correlation functions. Their accuracy is evaluated not only by
arbitrary value of total porosity, but also at zero porosity. These correlation relations can be utilized for determining
systematic error of used method or used device. This article should serve also as an instruction in choice of the correct
mathematical function, which expresses a relation between the pairs of physical properties. In conclusion of the first part
the possibility of their exploitation for practical purposes at the prompt checking directly at the brickworks is exhibited.
