Abstract

Change in the leucite weight fraction during an isothermal heat treatment was estimated by observing the deformation of PFM strips in a high-heating-rate, computer-controlled bending beam viscometer (BBV). Specimens of a commercial body porcelain were fired according to the manufacturers instructions-50 disk specimens for quantitative X-ray diffraction (XRD) and 100 bimaterial strip specimens for BBV. Timoshenko's equation for bimaterial thermostat was used to estimate the change in the thermal expansion of the porcelain near room temperature. Good agreement was obtained between values of leucite weight fraction derived from beam deformation and those determined by XRD.
