Sintering is a manufacturing technique that has existed for centuries to make bricks, china and pottery and is now used to produce high-tech materials and products. The process forms ceramic and metallic solids from powders and is used to manufacture automotive parts, valves & pumps, magnets, bio-ceramics and materials for nanotechnology. Modern modelling techniques are now employed to improve the efficiency of sintering. This book covers modern techniques in sintering and bridges the gap between the mathematical nature of some modelling techniques and the practical needs of industry. Sintering models are shown to be applied at three length scales. Sintering is viewed as a multi-scale process and the mathematical techniques linking the models at the three scales are discussed. Powder compaction models are outlined and programming and numerical issues discussed. Two computer programmes used for modelling sintering are provided on the CD. This book will interest researchers, engineers and postgraduates.

About the Author
Dr. Pan is a senior lecturer in the School of Engineering at the University of Surrey, UK and a researcher in the Centre for Engineering Materials and Structures there. He is a member of the UK research funding council, EPSRC, Peer Review College and a reviewer for several of the most important materials journals. This work has given Dr. Pan a good overview of the process of sintering and how it is modelled and led to him writing an extensive review paper in International Materials Reviews, vol. 48, pp. 69-85. This review will provide the basis of Dr. Pan's comprehensive monograph on the modelling of sintering processes.
