Simulation of Microstructure Evolution for Two-Phase Ceramic Tool Materials at Different Duration Time
A computer simulation of the sintering process of two-phase ceramic tool materials has been developed using a two-dimensional hexagon lattice model mapped from the realistic microstructure. The relationship between simulation time and real duration time has been proposed. The mean grain size of simulated microstructure increases with an increase in simulation time, which is consistent with the experimental results.
