The transmission of pressure in the dry pressing of typical building brick and fire brick mixes as affected by the degree of pressure, physical character of mix ingredient, and the moisture content of the mix
"In the manufacture of dry press brick, the final grinding and tempering of the clay is usually done in a dry pan. The next operation is forming the ware by means of applying pressure, either mechanical or hydraulic. The actual pressure that a brick is subjected to in a mechanical press has always been a question...The purpose of this investigation was to determine what effect would be imparted to the brick by varying the forming pressure and keeping the water content constant, and what effect would be imparted by varying the water content and keeping the forming pressure constant, on a series of typical dry press mixes"--Introduction, pages 2-3.
