Relaxation of thermal stresses in porous materials

  • Yu. L. Pilipovskii
Test Methods and Properties of Powder Metallurgical Materials


Porous materials possess an increased capacity for relaxation of thermal stresses as the result of an irreversible change in volume (most probably as the result of compaction in the hot zone by migration of the material into the voids under the action of compressive stresses).

The capacity for relaxation increases with a decrease in the volume share of the skeleton, which is related to the sharp decrease in the coefficient of effective viscosity of the material, which determines the capacity of a porous material for deformation.

The thermal resistance of porous materials may be increased by creation of the optimum porosity of the skeleton structure taking into consideration the necessary strength characteristics.
