Development of the ideas of Ya. I. Frenkel' in the contemporary rheological theory of sintering

  • V. V. Skorokhod
Theory And Technology Of The Forming Process


Evolution of the ideas of Ya. I. Frenkel' in both early and modern work on the rheological theory of sintering is retraced. The rheological approach developed by Frenkel', based on a dissipation potential method, is absolutely original and fruitful. Contemporary rheological sintering theory is shown to be a reliable basis for the engineering design and control of sintering as the key manufacturing process in powder metallurgy and ceramics technology.
