Refractory metals and alloys are well known for their high mechanical properties which make them useful for wide range of high temperature applications. However, owing to the refractoriness of these metals and alloys, it is very difficult to consolidate them under moderate conditions. Conventional P/M processing is a viable sintering technique for these(More)
In recent years, microwave processing of metal/alloy powders have gained considerable potential in the field of material synthesis. Microwave heating is recognized for its various advantages such as: time and energy saving, rapid heating rates, considerably reduced processing cycle time and temperature, fine microstructures and improved mechanical(More)
Microwave processing is emerging as an innovative and highly effective material processing method offering many advantages over conventional methods, especially for sintering applications. It is recognized for its various advantages, such as: time and energy saving, rapid heating rates, considerably reduced processing cycle time and temperature, fine(More)
Tungsten based composites such as W–Cu have been widely used as electrical contacts, especially in heavy duty applications and as spark erosion electrodes. The lack of solubility between tungsten and copper makes it very difficult to achieve full densification through liquid phase sintering. Higher sintering temperatures or longer holding times always help(More)

The present study examines the effect of heating mode on the densification, microstructure, and mechanical properties of iron-nickel steel with graphite and phosphorus addition. The compacts were sintered in conventional (radiatively-heated) and microwave (2.45 GHz, multimode) furnaces at 1120 degrees C for 1 hour in forming gas (dissociated ammonia(More)
The aim of the present investigation is to study the sintering behavior of the Cu12Sn bronze system in both, a microwave furnace as well as a conventional furnace. The powders prepared by premixed and prealloyed routes were sintered in the range of solid state, transient and supersolidus liquid phase sintering conditions. The comparative analysis is based(More)
An experiment was undertaken to assess the effects of 8 days artificial water-logging under natural field conditions on physiological traits of 12 pigeon pea [Cajanus cajan (L.) Millsp.] genotypes during rainy seasons of 2011–2012 and 2012–2013. The physiological traits were significantly affected by waterlogging. Under normal conditions highest values for(More)
The linearized Boussinesq equation incorporating the effect of evapotranspiration with appropriate initial and boundary conditions was solved analytically to predict a fall in the water table in a bi-level drainage system. It was assumed that the evapotranspiration rate decreases linearly with a reduction in the elevation of the water table above the(More)
