SPS systems offer many advantages over conventional systems using hot press (HP) sinter‐ ing, hot isostatic . Mechanical pressure. When a spark discharge appears in a gap or at the contact point between the particles of a material, a local high temperature-state (discharge column) of several to ten thousands of degrees
In this paper, we report the successful integration of a SPS device into a hermetic glovebox for the handling of highly radioactive material containing radioisotopes of U, Th, Pu, Np, and Am. The glovebox implantation has been facilitated by the replacement of the hydraulic system to apply pressure with a compact
8 Nov 2017 A new flash (ultra-rapid) spark plasma sintering method applicable to various materials systems, regardless of their electrical resistivity, is developed. The spark plasma sintering (SPS) process is an ECAS technique that combines the benefits of highly pulsed electric current (1000–8000 A), high pressure
31 May 2017 At higher temperatures, where their further agglomeration and coalescence can lead to rapid sintering, enhanced densification at increased heating rates with limited grain growth can be achieved. The rapid sintering (RS) of the 3YSZ green bodies was carried out in a pressure-less SPS set-up using a

Spark-plasma sintering (SPS) and other field-assisted powder consolidation approaches provide remarkable capabilities to the processing of materials into The results of a study of ultra-rapid (flash) sintering of oxide ceramic materials under microwave heating with high absorbed power per unit volume of material
27 Apr 2017 Ti–Al–Si alloys are prospective material for high-temperature applications. Due to low density, good mechanical properties, and oxidation resistance, these intermetallic alloys can be used in the aerospace and automobile industries. Ti–Al–Si alloys were prepared by powder metallurgy using reactive
Hot pressing is a high-pressure, low-strain-rate powder metallurgy process for forming of a powder or powder compact at a temperature high enough to induce sintering and creep processes. This is achieved by the simultaneous application of heat and pressure. Hot pressing is mainly used to fabricate hard and brittle
Over the last decade, zirconia technology has encouraged a rapid development of metal free dentistry that may provide high biocompatibility, enhanced esthetics and .. A study by Blue et al. demonstrated that Y-TZP was significantly harder to machine than fully sintered alumina with lower material removal rates .
Novel, bulk multiwall carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) sintered with polycarbosilane (PCS) as a binder agent were fabricated by spark plasma sintering (SPS) , and their microstructure and properties were investigated. Sintering was done with 20-60. MPa pressure at 1200C SEM and TEM observations showed that the
