Paper Title:
Effects of Inhomogenization on Sintering Behavior of Ni/Al2O3 Powder Mixtures
  Abstract

Aiming at the modification of the sinterability of metal/ceramic powder mixtures, the influence of the homogeneity in microstructure on the sintering behavior is examined. Ni/Al2O3 specimens, with ratios ranging from 0/100 to 100/0, are prepared by compaction through two different procedures of mixing and granulating, to change the degree of particle dispersion. The sintering stress and the viscosity of the specimens are measured by sinter-compression tests to consider the sinterability from the viewpoint of both driving force and resistance. The sintering rate of the inhomogeneous compacts, with agglomeration of powder particles, is larger than that of the homogeneous compacts. This is because the viscosity becomes low, but the sintering stress does not change much by inhomogenizing the microstructure.
