The aim of research is establishment of the relationship between the various properties of the mixture with liquid glass and hardener for the foundry industry – survivability, compressive strength and crumbling. Such an interrelation in the form of an adequate functional dependence makes it possible to assess the quality of the mixture for its compliance with the specified requirements, without resorting to additional laboratory measurements. It is very important to evaluate its suitability for the manufacture of rods, in particular, to meet the stringent requirements of production. Using the combined procedure of active and passive experiments, a regression equation was obtained describing the dependence of the mixture survivability on compressive strength and crumbling. It has been established that compressive strength is a more significant factor influencing survivability compared to crumbling, and it is almost 3 times (а1=0.36>а2=0.13). Analysis of the resulting regression equation shows that both of these factors have a positive effect on the survivability of the mixture – with an increase in compressive strength and crumbling, the survivability increases. In part, this conclusion requires confirmation in relation to crumbling, since the fact of a positive effect on survivability may be in doubt.

By applying the procedure of comb analysis to the obtained regression equation, in order to describe the response surface, locally optimal solutions are established in the form of a ridge line. This line represents the optimal combination of compressive strength and shedding in the sense of ensuring the maximum survivability of the mixture. The corresponding ratios can be used as a nomogram, which allows to evaluate the ratios of the desired properties of the mixture, if it is fundamentally important to assess its quality by a set of properties.
