Thermodynamics of densification of powder compact

Abstract

This paper established a necessary condition for the sintering of powder compacts by examining the total free energy balance in terms of the particle size, neck size and contact number. The thermodynamic analysis of the proposed model clarifies the relation of shrinkage (q) of powder compact-contact angle (f)-relative density at a given dihedral angle (fe… (More)
