The purpose of the study is to create a macromodel of interfacial transition layer in ceramic matrix composites. Chemical and mineralogical compositions were investigated by means of X-ray fluorescence analysis and X-ray diffractometry, ceramic and technological properties of raw materials were defined using standard test methods for argillaceous raw materials. Phase composition and structure of ceramic specimens were studied using a complex of modern physico-chemical analysis methods. The layer-by-layer model of shell-core transition in ceramic matrix material was suggested. Boundary conditions for obtaining specimens were defined in terms of number of layers, thickness of such layers and pitch of core-to-shell material ratio. Forced air supply was organized while burning for directed heat and mass transfer inside the specimens. Mineral composition of layers was defined for ceramic specimens with the core of iron ore waste and the shell of clay. The study enabled to determine dependences between qualitative and semi-quantitative variation of new mineral formations content in transitional layers of a composite, which is the evidence of interaction between the core and the shell products while burning a ceramic matrix material.
