Abstract:A three‐dimensional parallel implementation of a Monte Carlo model for the microstructure evolution during sintering is presented. The model accounts for the main phenomena occurring during sintering, including grain growth, pore migration and vacancy annihilation. The parallel implementation is based on the SPPARKS code and enables the simulation of systems with large number of particles. Several examples are shown and results are compared with a serial implementation as well as experimental data available.

- The objective of the International Journal of Computational Materials Science and Surface Engineering is to establish an effective channel of communication between academic and research institutions and persons concerned with industrial research supported by practical application. It also aims at promoting and coordinating developments in the field of computational materials science and computational surface engineering by publishing original scientific papers which describe computer-aided methods of modelling, simulation and prediction for designing new engineering materials and the technological processes of the manufacturing in materials that are used for solving problems posed by materials and surface engineering professionsals, industrial managers and administrators, and technical education personnel.
