Abstract

We report on the formulation of a factor, f, that when applied together with the activation energy for viscous flow (Q), can be used to provide important insight into the densification mechanism that are active during powder sintering. We ascertain the validity of this formulation by comparing the densification behaviour of atomized and milled powders for Ti-6Al-4V alloy and pure Ti during spark plasma sintering, and identifying the underlying mechanisms.
