Of considerable interest among the various manifestations of the dependence of the flow rate of crystalline materials on the concentration of imperfections is the high flow rate of imperfect crystals of metals obtained by electrolysis of salt solutions at a high current density. The dendrite-like crystals obtained under these conditions undergo a change in shape under the influence of surface tension at room temperature. Observations of the changes in the shape of dendrite-like crystals and the gaps (fissures) between them can yield important additional information on the nature of elementary processes developing during sintering.
