Computer Study of Skeletal Settling Combined with Extrication of Solid Phase Domains during Liquid Phase Sintering of Tungsten Heavy Alloy
In this paper, we investigated numerically gravity induced skeletal settling during liquid phase sintering. The microstructural evolution will be simulated by simultaneous computation of displacement of the center of mass and mass transport due to dissolution and precipitation at the interfaces between solid-phase and liquid matrix. Common to this study based on domain methodology for definition of regular multi-domain model will be the need to relate some diffusional phenomena to essential geometric and topological attributes of the W-Ni porous microstructure influenced by skeletal settling combined with extrication of some solid-phase domains during liquid phase sintering.
