ABSTRACT:     In the current study, improvement of HAp/Calcined kaolin (CK) strength as a function of its curing regime was studied. The influence of curing temperature and time on the compressive strength of hydroxyapatite combined with calcined kaolin (HAp/CK) samples was investigated using statistical analysis. Curing temperatures were ranged 40, 60, 80 °C and curing times were 2, 7, 14, 21, 28 days, respectively. Prolonged curing time and increased curing temperature improved the compressive strength of the samples. The curing time and temperature significantly affected the compressive strength of HAp/CK samples, while there was no interaction between curing time and curing temperature. The highest compressive strength, 37.8 MPa, was realized by curing the sample at 80 °C for 28 days. The optimal process was curing HAp/CK at 60 °C for 14 days to achieve a high compressive strength.
