Fractal Characters of Micro-Pores in the Sinter
The pore in the sinter is an important character. Because of multiphase and asymmetry in the sinter, the structure of the pore is very complex. To study the character of the pore effectively, the method of mercury intrusion porosimetry is applied to measure the pore in the sinter, and the results are dealt with by the fractal theory. The results prove that the pores in the sinter are actually fractal structure when the size of the pores is more than 204.5 nm because their curves in the log-log plot are linear, and some curves qualified with the linearity obviously possess of the segment linearity character. According to the calculation of the fractal D, the relationship of the strength and fractal D will be established.
