A two-dimensional Monte Carlo (MC) model is proposed to explore densification behaviors of two-phase systems, where mutually contacting circular particles evolve through the mass and vacancy transport. In the model, variable diffusivities are controlled by categorizing the spin configurational changes occurring during the simulation. We investigate the relative contribution of different diffusion mechanisms to the sintering kinetics and microstructural evolution. Also, we examine the effect of boundary energy anisotropy on the sintering behavior. For this presentation, 2-particle and 3-particle geometries are used to compare the simulation results to those from previous theories and experiments.
