Abstract

Consideration has been given to the process of electric‐discharge sintering (EDS) of a powder fill in passing an electric current through it. The dependences for calculation of the heat release, the efficiency of an EDS unit, the resistance of a powder fill, and the temperature in the contact zone have been obtained. An algorithm for calculation of the technological parameters of the process of EDS has been given.
