Fabrication of Porous Alumina Ceramics by Spark Plasma Sintering Method


Article Preview

In this work, porous alumina ceramics were obtained by controlled sintering of alumina-carbon black powder mixtures. In order to develop the porous alumina ceramics with high strength, as the amount of carbon black increased, the number of small pores increased because the pore characteristics and relative density the influence of SPS condition and carbon black content on was studied.
