During firing, the deformation of ceramic articles under their own weight may be problematic particularly in the sanitary ware industry where articles are large. A model has been developed that predicts the viscoelastic deformation of a range of vitreous china testpieces during the firing process. The model constitutes a novel application of the transmission line modelling technique to viscoelastic deformation. The applicability of the model to the sanitary ware industry is addressed.
