Some Effects of Aggregates and Agglomerates in the Fabrication of Fine Grained Ceramics
The processing engineer in production tends to equate processing with productivity. But viewed as a science, powder processing can be defined as the sequence of operations which systematically enhances the particulate character (presintering operations) and ultimately the composition and structure of the product material (sintering and surface finishing). Processing is a systems problem. Many functional operations and parameters are involved. But the continuous thread is the evolution of the chemical and physical character.
