Effects of Applied Pressure on Densification During Sintering in the Presence of Liquid Phase
Experimental measurements of the effects of an applied pressure on sintering of powdered materials containing a liquid phase indicate that the applied pressure can be effective by: (a) increasing the extent and rate of particle rearrangement, (b) increasing the rate of solution at particle contacts, and (c) causing plastic flow within the solid particles. Which of these processes predominates depends on the characteristics of each particular system and on the level of applied pressure.
