Fireclay Brick — Creep In Compression (CIC)

A CIC test was performed on a test piece taken from a fireclay brick (approx. 35% Al2O3);

Test conditions: 0.2 N/mm2; 5 K/min; 25h at 1190°C; static air.
The double graph shows the dynamic heating phase and the time-scaled CreepCreep describes a time and temperature dependent plastic deformation under a constant force. When a constant force is applied to a rubber compound, the initial deformation obtained due to the application of the force is not fixed. The deformation will increase with time.creep at constant temperature.
