Research on the Ceramic Sintering Grain Growth Model


Article Preview

Mechanical properties of ceramic materials are closely related to the grain size, and control the ceramic material grain size is the key to increase mechanical properties of materials. Study on the theory of ceramic sintering grain growth model, such as solid phase sintering, liquid phase sintering and master sintering curve (MSC) and so on. Grain growth model not only can be used to guide the actual production design, but also can be used as a computer simulation tools. It is suggest that before use any grain growth model must modify their express from traditional model, and check the equation is correct that it is agree with the result of re-experiment.
