Ceramic Processing and Sintering, Second Edition provides clear and intensive discussions on colloidal and sol-gel processing, sintering of ceramics, and kinetic processes in materials. From powder synthesis and consolidation to sintering Cited by: One of the most important and beneficial uses of sintering in the modern era is the fabrication of sintered parts of all kinds, including powder-metallurgical parts and bulk ceramic components. Sintering aims at producing sintered parts, with reproducible micro-structure, through the control of sintering variables. Sintering is the process of forming materials and components from a powder under the action of thermal energy. It is a key materials science subject: most ceramic materials and many specialist metal powder Cited by: With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Sintering of advanced materials: fundamentals and processes reviews the latest advances in sintering and is a standard reference for researchers and engineers involved in the processing of ceramics, powder metallurgy, net-shape manufacturing and those using advanced materials.
Fundamentals of Ceramic Powder Processing and Synthesis presents examples of these modern methods as they apply to ceramic powders. The book is organized to describe the natural and synthetic raw materials that comprise contemporary ceramics. It covers the three reactant processes used in synthetic ceramic powder synthesis: solid, liquid, andgas. Ceramic powder processing, as a field of materials processing. the ceramic, it goes through a process known as sintering. Sintering is the process of heating the. green body up to high temperature for a certain length of time in order to provide the energy. necessary for the ceramic particles to bond together, reducing the number of pores. This book is primarily an introduction to the vast family of ceramic materials. The first part is devoted to the basics of ceramics and processes: raw materials, powders synthesis, shaping and sintering. It discusses traditional ceramics as well as “technical” ceramics 5/5(1). Background Information: All materials must be processed in some way to achieve either a particular material property or create a specific shape. There are many different material processing techniques, but one that is fundamental to ceramic materials is sintering. Sintering File Size: 1MB.
This is a wonderful text book for anyone involved in sintering of technical ceramics or powder metallurgy. German is incredible thorough in his research, and presents the book in a very easy to read format. Highly, highly recommended for materials Cited by: Suk-Joong L. Kang, in Sintering, Publisher Summary. Sintering is categorized in the synthesis/processing element among the four basic elements of materials science and engineering. It is a processing technique employed to produce density-controlled materials and components from metal or/and ceramic powders . Sintering is a diffusional process that proceeds at relatively high temperatures, usually between 1/2 and 3/4 of the melting temperature of the ceramic.2 During sintering, material is transported to inter-particle necks to build a strong ceramic bond. The goal of the sintering step is to convert a porous powder File Size: KB. Summary Sintering of Ceramics provides the only comprehensive treatment of the theories and principles of sintering and their application to the production of advanced ceramics with the required target microstructure. Stemming from the author’s bestselling text, Ceramic Processing and Sintering, this book includes additional material .
