A Multiphase Mixture Model for the Shock Induced Consolidation of Metal Powders

  • R. A. Berry
  • R. L. Williamson


Recently, shock waves have been used to dynamically consolidate rapidly solidified metal powders. Because of the apparently low bulk temperatures and accompanying high surface temperatures, the plastically deformed particles consolidate to form fully dense monoliths which essentially retain the unique, metastable morphology of the original powder particles, e.g., Flinn et al., [1] and Korth et al., [2].
