Table Original weight of the specimens

As indicated in Table 5, Cycloheximide bending strength of the samples without wollastonite was in the range of 12.24 to 16.46 MPa and the highest bending strength value obtained was 16.46 MPa in the samples fired at 1275 °C. When the changes in the strength values of samples by addition of wollastonite analysed, bending strength values increased at all temperatures for 1 wt% wollastonite addition and the samples having 2 wt% wollastonite addition for the temperature range studied showed slightly lower strengths than latitudinal gradient containing 1 wt% wollastonite.
