Modelling of the Process of Formation and Use of Powder Nanocomposites

  • Alexandre Vakhrouchev
Part of the Computational Methods in Applied Sciences book series (COMPUTMETHODS, volume 9)


The methods for the modelling of the processes that accompany obtaining and use of powder nanocomposites are presented. For this purpose, a number of physical-mathematical models, including the models of obtaining of nano-sized powders at ‚up down’ processes, the models of the main compaction steps of powder nanocomposites and the models of deformation of powder nanocomposites under the ambient action were developed. A number of numerical examples of modelling based on the models developed are considered.
