Paper Title:
Field Assisted Sintering Consolidation of Al-Si-Fe-X Alloy Powder/Flakes Produced through Air Atomization/Melt Spinning
  Abstract

Melt-spun flakes and air atomised powder of a multi-component Al-Si-Fe-X alloy were consolidated by field assisted (FAST) or spark plasma sintering (SPS) in vacuum using steel dies and punches. Experiments were carried out at 350, 400, 450 and 500°C under applied loads ranging from 81 to 283 MPa. The resulting compacts were microstructurally and mechanically characterized. Ultimate strength values up to 1000 MPa and plastic strains up to 20% were observed during compression tests. The effect of the powder shape on the sintering behaviour is compared. The effect of process parameters such as temperature and applied load on the densification and mechanical properties is discussed. It was found that compacts sintered from melt-spun flakes resulted in a higher strength and ductility than compacts produced from air-atomized powder, sintered under identical conditions.
