Liquid-Phase Sintering of the Systems With Interacting Components

  • Arnold Savitskii


The existing conceptions on the problem of liquid phase sintering fail to give answers to many questions like the following:
  • why do compacts during liquid-phase sintering grow at first and then shrink, but not vice versa;

  • why is the amount of compact growth the greater, the coarser the solid-phase particles;

  • why no shrinkage is observed, even if temporary, when the content of a liquid additive does not exceed the solubility limit in the solid phase;

  • why does the amount of swelling increase only within the concentration range of the solidphase existence with increasing the additive content in the mixture;

  • why is the heat release observed at the first, or growth, stage, but not during shrinkage;

  • why is the growth rate in the systems with intermetallic compounds much higher than in those with solid solutions only.
