Sintering Fundamentals II – new publication includes key papers on sintering

October 22, 2015

A new 274 page publication entitled Sintering Fundamentals II, edited by Professor Dr G S Upadhyaya, is now available from Trans Tech Publications Inc. Following the publication of the first volume in 2009, the second volume contains seven papers written by respected authors from five countries.

The first paper, authored by Professor Upadhyaya (India), covers historical aspects of sintering fundamentals which began in the middle of the 20th century. The coverage of literature is extensive, most of which are available only in the print form. 

The second paper, authored by R M German (USA), presents an approach that links to the global energy reduction during sintering. The third paper authored by M S Kovalchenko (Ukraine) is entitled ‘Rheology and Kinetics of Pressure Sintering’.

The following paper by Austrian scientists, H Danninger and C Gierl-Mayer covers the sintering aspects of Cr- containing steels in which dilatometry coupled with mass spectroscopy is shown as good tool for sintering process control. This is then followed by a joint paper from Russian scientist I Konyashin with  Austrian scientist W Lenguer, which encompasses functionally graded cemented carbides.

The next two papers deal with ceramic systems. ‘Doped Ceria based Oxide Fuel Cell Electrolytes and their Sintering Aspects’, presents an exhaustive review (P Datta, India). Finally, in the last paper K  Biswas and others (India) discuss sintering and microstructural modifications of seeded and neodymium doped lanthanum hexaaluminate.
