Planned learning activities and teaching methods
The course uses teaching methods in form of Laboratory exercise - 4 teaching hours per week. The e-learning system (LMS Moodle) is available to teachers and students.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Credit test (45 min) verifying the knowledge of the course of laboratory procedures and tests.
Language of instruction
1) Determination of humidity, density and loss on ignition
2) COD test
3) Rational analysis of ceramic raw materials
4) Determination of hygroscopicity
5) Liquidation tests of casting suspensions
6) Determination of thixotropy
7) Determination of solubles content
8) Determination of sorption capacity
9) Determination of carbonates in soils
10) Sedimentation analysis by hydrometer
11) Adsorption of anogranic dyes
