Title: THE COMPARISON OF SINTERING LOOSE METAL POWDERS AND PRESSED METAL POWDER COMPACTS. Progress Report, March 1, 1962-February 28, 1963

Abstract

In sintering powder aggregates and compacts, externally applied forces play a large role in addition to the action of surface tension forces. The mass transport mechanism for sintering was shown to be due to dislocation motion rather than to diffusional processes. In order to differentiate between dislocation motion and volume diffusion as the mass transport mechanism during the sintering of copper powder compacts at high temperature, their isothermal rate of shrinkage was measured in a dilotometer. Results indicate that even at temperature in the range 50 to 100 nif- C below the melting point of copper, the mass transport mechanism for sintering of copper powder compacts is dislocation motion and not volume diffusion. (H G.G.)
