  • Frank HändleEmail author


The two definitions of plasticity in ceramics and how to measure deformation pressure and rupture strength. Which factors determine the plasticity of a ceramic body? About two relevant methods to detect the consistency and extrudability of ceramic bodies and the relation of these term with plasticity.
