Nonequilibrium kinetic study of sintering of dispersed nanoparticles
Kinetic Monte Carlo approach is developed to study aspects of sintering of dispersed nanoparticles of bimodal size distribution. We explore mechanisms of neck development when sintering is initiated
Nonequilibrium kinetic modeling of sintering of a layer of dispersed nanocrystals
We report a kinetic Monte Carlo modeling study of nanocrystal layer sintering. Features that are of interest for the dynamics of the layer as a whole, especially the morphology of the evolving
Monte Carlo Simulation of Densification during Liquid-Phase Sintering
The densification process during liquid-phase sintering was simulated by Monte Carlo simulation. The Potts model, which had been applied to coarsening during liquid-phase sintering, was modified to
Master Sintering Curve for TiO2
The master sintering concept is introduced as a unifying sintering model for the initial, intermediate and final stage of sintering. The master sintering curve is independent on the time-temperature
Modeling the Microstructural Evolution During Constrained Sintering
A numerical model able to simulate solid-state constrained sintering is presented. The model couples an existing kinetic Monte Carlo model for free sintering with a finite element model (FEM) for
The effect of particle size distributions on the microstructural evolution during sintering
Microstructural evolution and sintering behavior of powder compacts composed of spherical particles with different particle size distributions (PSDs) were simulated using a kinetic Monte Carlo model
Sintering of Multilayered Porous Structures: Part I‐Constitutive Models
Theoretical analyses of shrinkage and distortion kinetics during sintering of bilayered porous structures are carried out. The developed modeling framework is based on the continuum theory of
Improved compaction of ZnO nano-powder triggered by the presence of acetate and its effect on sintering
The sintering trajectory reveals that grain growth is retarded compared to conventional processing up to 90% of theoretical density, and nearly no radial shrinkage was observed after sinter-forging for bodies performed with this advanced processing method.


Packing and Sintering of Two‐Dimensional Structures Made fro Bimodal Particle Size Distributions
Binary mixtures of spheres were used to prepare a variety of two-dimensional structures ranging from ordered to disordered. The extent of particle order was influenced by the size ratio and the
Spatial Variations in the Sintering Rate of Ordered and Disordered Particle Structures
Local sintering rates were measured in two-dimensional, ordered and disordered structures constructed from glass spheres. In ordered arrays, made from monosized spheres, the local sintering rates
Effects of particle packing on the sintered microstructure
The sintering process is shown to be critically dependent on particle-packing density and porosity uniformity. Sintering experiments were conducted on compacts consisting of monodisperse, spherical
Intermediate-stage sintering of a homogeneously packed compact
Several characteristic equations in intermediate sintering dependent on a grain-growth mechanism were quantitatively estimated using the microstructural data of sintered compacts. The relations which
Formation, Packing, and Sintering of Monodisperse TiO2 Powders
Monodisperse TiO2 powders were synthesized by the controlled hydrolysis of dilute alcoholic solutions of titanium alkoxides. The state of powder aggregation in dispersions and powder packing in the
Preparation of SiO2 Glass from Model Powder Compacts: II, Sintering
The sintering behavior of powder compacts formed from spherical, nearly monosized SiO2 particles was investigated. Highly ordered compacts sintered to high density and translucency at 1000°C. In
Sintering Crystalline Solids. II. Experimental Test of Diffusion Models in Powder Compacts
During sintering in alumina powder compacts, the density has been found to increase linearly with the logarithm of time, and the grain size increases with the one-third power of time. Incorporation
