Abstract:Thermal cycle designs for sintering and thermal decomposition processes are one of the most critical steps to produce quality components using any of the several particulate materials processing options. Recently, researchers have been applying the concept of time integration of thermal work to sintering and thermal decomposition processes for analysing and optimising thermal processes. This concept provides a master curve for a given material system, which is very useful in real application. This paper provides the theoretical background and applications in these master curve approaches: Master Sintering Curves (MSC) for grain growth and densification; and Master Decomposition Curve (MDC) for thermal debinding/delubrication processes.

- International Journal of Materials and Structural Integrity is a fully-refereed journal that aims to provide a unique medium of communication for multidisciplinary approaches, either empirical or theoretical, to the study of materials and structural integrity. Its goals are to promote cross-fertilization of ideas between all the scientific disciplines having to deal with their own materials and structural integrity, including engineering, bionics, physics and chemistry.
International Journal of Materials and Structural Integrity is committed to the highest scientific standards, judging contributions on their contents and scientific value alone, rather than whether methods, questions, style, or language conform to the customs of a particular field.
