This work presents experimental and theoretical study of the effect of a plant bidder (corchirus olitorius) on the thermal shock resistance and thermal con: of kaolinite-based refractories. Shock-induced crack growth, thermal conductr mechanical strength is studied in sintered structures produced from powde varying binder concentrations. The underlying microstructures are elucida scanning electron microscope (SEM). The implications of this work are discus the design of strong and long lasting ceramic stove linings for the energy sav efficient stoves for rural and urban area households in developing countries wood/charcoal is the main source of energy. Another implication is the de stronger ceramic water filter membranes used for water purification.
