Summary

This work summarizes a feasibility study conducted to determine if impedance spectroscopy is a suitable in-situ probe for characterizing whiteware bodies during processing. Features of impedance spectra collected from pug- and wad-milled bodies are discussed and related to the microstructure of the body. Changes in the spectra as a function of drying times are also examined. The results of the study indicate that features in the impedance spectra can be correlated to the physical features of the body and that the technique is sensitive enough to measure changes in the body during drying.
