Three-Dimensional Simulation of Sintering of Ceramics
In this paper, we have employed a kinetic Potts model to simulate sintering of ceramics in which grain growth and densification of microstructure are usually concerned about. Grain growth and pore evolution in three-dimension are simulated using the kinetic Potts model. Quantitative information about grain size distribution, density and surface area are also evaluated in evolution of the model. Morphologic changes and densification kinetics are used to verify the model.
