Abstract

Bearing in mind the specific granular structure of sintered materials produced from powders, whose compaction process is linked with the sintering treatment, we have experimented with methods of checking the degree of sintering and certain other properties. The non-destructive methods used include: (1) Examination of the crystalline structure of solid sinters, using metallography and electron microscopy. These methods show the homogeneity of the structure, the grain size and orientation, the presence of various flaws such as inclusions and pores, and the actual course of the sintering process, including crystal formation, grain growth, etc. In certain cases the microscopic examination can be combined with micro-hardness tests. This examination of the microcrystalline structure is one of the principal methods of checking the quality of sintered materials, and is irreplaceable by any other method. (2) The degree of compaction, which is the main factor in determining the quality of sintered materials, can also be checked by measuring certain properties such as electrical and thermal conductivity in relation to density, since for sintered materials conductivity is directly proportional to the degree of sintering. We have also tested and found satisfactory a method for checking porosity, and have obtained interesting experimental data, especially on free  More>>

(author) [French] En tenant compte de la structure specifique granulaire des materiaux frittes, elabores a partir de poudres, pour lesquels le proces de consolidation evolue en fonction du traitement de frittage, on a experimente des methodes de controle du degre de frittage et de quelques proprietes. Parmi les methodes non destructives utilisees, les auteurs citent les suivantes: 1. Examen de la structure cristalline des corps solides frittes, a l'aide de la metallographie et de la microscopie electronique. Ces methodes mettent en evidence l'homogeneite de la structure, les dimensions et l'orientation des grains, la presence de defauts divers (inclusions, pores) et revolution meme du processus de frittage, y compris la formation des cristaux, la croissance granulaire, etc. Dans quelques cas, on peut combiner l'examen microscopique a des essais de microdurete. Cet examen de la structure microcristalline represente l'une des methodes principales de controle qualitatif des materiaux frittes, et ne peut etre remplace par aucun autre moyen d'investigation. 2. Controle du degre de consolidation, qui determine essentiellement la qualite des materiaux frittes. Ce controle est effectue par la mesure de quelques proprietes, telles que la conductibilite electrique et thermique, en correlation avec la densite, etant donne que la conductibilite des materiaux frittes est directement porportionnelle au degre de frittage. On a essaye aussi une methode adequate de controle de la porosite; on a obtenu des donnees experimentales interessantes, surtout au point de vue de la porosite libre, laquelle est susceptible aux inclusions gazeuses. Le memoire contient des donnees experimentales concernant l'application de ces methodes de controle a quelques materiaux frittes interessants pour la technologie nucleaire. (author) [Spanish] Teniendo en cuenta la estructura granular especifica de los materiales sinterizados, elaborados a partir de polvos, cuyo proceso de consolidacion se desarrolla en funcion del tratamiento de sinterizacion, los autores han estudiado algunos metodos para verificar el grado de sinterizacion y controlar ciertas propiedades. Entre los metodos no destructivos utilizados, se mencionan en la presente memoria: 1. Examen de la estructura cristalina de los solidos sinterizados por metalografia y microscopfa electronica. Estos metodos ponen de manifiesto el giado de homogeneidad estructural, la dimension y orientacion de los granos, la presencia de defectos diversos (inclusiones, poros), y tambien la evolucion misma del proceso de sinterizacion, incluyendo la formacion de los cristales, el crecimiento granular, etc. En algunos casos, el examen microscopico se puede combinar con ensayos de microdureza. Este examen de la estructura micro- cristalina representa uno de los principales metodos de control cualitativo de los materiales sinterizados, y ningun otro medio de investigacion puede reemplazarlo. 2. El grado de consolidacion, factor esencial que determina la calidad de los materiales sinterizados, se verifica tambien midiendo algunas propiedades, por ejemplo la conductividad electrica y termica, en funcion de la densidad, teniendo presente que en el caso de los materiales sinterizados, la conductividad es directamente proporcional al grado de sinterizacion. Tambien se ha ensayado un metodo adecuado para verificar la porosidad, obteniendose datos experimentales interesantes, sobre todo desde el punto de vista de la porosidad libre, que es afectada por las inclusiones gaseosas. La memoria contiene datos experimentales sobre la aplicacion de estos metodos de control a algunos materiales sinterizados, de interes para la tecnologia nuclear.

Ispol'zovalis' sledujushhie metody bez razrushenija: 1. Izuchenie kristallicheskoj struktury spechennyh tverdyh tel s pomoshh'ju metallo- grafik i jelektronnoj mikroskopii. Jeti metody pozvoljajut obnaruzhit' odnorodnost' struktury, razmery i orientaciju zeren, nalichie razlichnyh defektov (vkraplenija, pustoty), a takzhe razvitie processa spekanija, vkljuchaja obrazovanie kristallov, uvelichenie zeren i pr. V nekotoryh sluchajah mozhno sovmeshhat' mikroskopicheskoe issledovanie s ispytanijami na mikrotverdost'. Takoe issledovanie mikrokristallicheskoj struktury predstavljaet soboj odin iz osnovnyh metodov kachestvennogo kontrolja za spechennymi materialami, i on ne mozhet byt' zamenen nikakim drugim metodom issledovanija; 2. Stepen' uplotnenija, kotoraja i opredeljaet glavnym obrazom kachestvo spechennyh materialov, takzhe kontroliruetsja putem izmerenija nekotoryh svojstv, naprimer jelektro- i teploprovodimosti, s popravkoj na plotnost', poskol'ku v sluchae s spechennymi materialami provodimost' prjamo proporcional'na stepeni spekanija. Primenjalsja takzhe adjekvatnyj metod kontrolja za poristost'ju, kotoryj pozvolil poluchit' interesnye jeksperimental'nye svedenija, osobenno s tochki zrenija svobodnoj poristosti, prigodnoj dlja gazovyh vkljuchenij. Privodjatsja jeksperimental'nye dannye otnositel'no primenenija jetih metodov kontrolja k nekotorym spechennym materialam, predstavljajushhie interes dlja jadernoj tehnologii. (author)}
