AbstractLength changes of mortar-porcelain and mortar-quarry tile composites (typically 10x3x8mm) have been examined in the temperature range -10 to +50 degrees C. The effect of heating rate (1 and 4 degrees C/min.), dimensions of specimens, volume ratio of components and location of the measuring point with reference to the interface was evaluated. Length changes of the interfacial zone significantly deviated from the values predicted by assumption of elastic behaviour. Good agreement between measured and calculated values was obtained, however, outside the interfacial zone extending 5mm into the mortar and 3.5mm into the tile component.
