An improved version of Steger's temperature gradient method of studying the firing behavior of ceramic bodies, clays, and glazes is given. The test specimen (8 in. long) is subjected, from one end to the other, to a temperature gradient of several hundred degrees. Such properties as shrinkage, hardness, bloating, crazing, and color are observed for the entire range of temperature. Furnace design and method of plotting results are given.
