Abstract

An elastic-visco-plastic thermomechanical model for cold forming of ceramic powders and subsequent sintering is introduced and based on micromechanical modelling of the compaction process of granulates. Micromechanics is shown to yield an upper-bound estimate to the compaction curve of a granular material, which compares well with other models and finite element simulations. The parameters of the thermomechanical model are determined on the basis of available data and dilatometer experiments. Finally, after computer implementation, validation of the model is performed with a specially designed ceramic piece showing zones of different density. The mechanical model is found to accurately describe forming and sintering of stoneware ceramics and can therefore be used to analyze and optimize industrial processes involving compaction of powders and subsequent firing of the greens.
