Modeling of glass sintering applied for the fabrication of porous glass bodies

The sintering behavior of borosilicate and soda-lime mono-sized glass beads was investigated with the aim to fabricate transparent porous glass balls and cylinders. As the glasses tend to

The mechanisms of surface nucleation are still not fully understood, but some of the key factors are now known and the surface–nucleation density can thus be controlled for the development of sintered glasses or glass ceramics.



Isothermal sintering with concurrent crystallisation of monodispersed and polydispersed glass particles. Part 1

We review and discuss an algorithm with no adjustable parameters to simulate the kinetics of concurrent sintering and crystallisation of monodispersed and polydispersed glass particles. The algorithm

Isothermal Sintering of Cordierite‐Type Glass Powders

Uniaxially pressed pellets of cordierite-type glass powders were sintered in air at 800°, 820°, 840°, and 860°C. There was pronounced anisotropy of shrinkage for these pellets composed of

Preparation of glass by sintering

Preparation of glass articles by sintering of glass and amorphous powders is considered. The classification of sintering processes includes: (a) sintering of premelted and pulverized glasses; (b)

The kinetics of surface induced sinter crystallization and the formation of glass-ceramic materials

A thorough analysis is given of a process which is of great importance for the formation of many present day glass ceramic materials: sinter-crystallization. In the first part of the paper the

Sintering of sol-gel films

The sintering of films differs from that of bulk gels in several ways. The initial state of a film is generally denser and less crosslinked than a bulk gel made from the same sol, and these factors

Sintering of Low‐Density Glasses: III, Effect of a Distribution of Pore Sizes

The sintering model presented in Part I is extended by considering a Gaussian distribution of pore sizes in the body. The effect of the breadth of the distribution on the densification kinetics is
