Scope This symposium joins the communities interested in sintering and related phenomena, such as field assisted processes, nanosintering, grain growth, and interface effects, both modeling and experimental. It represents the continuation of the TMS Powder Materials Committee initiative to bring together the sintering symposia from past MS&T’s in a larger event welcoming both TMS and ACerS communities, fulfilling the goals of MS&T conferences of creating an interdisciplinary and fruitful research environment.

The symposium will cover areas of both ceramic and metals over grain growth control, nanopowder consolidation and processing, novel sintering technologies (such as Spark Plasma Sintering, Direct Current Sintering and Flash), nanosintering, in-situ measuring techniques, computer simulations (MD, Surface Evolver, Phase Field, etc), and Hot isostatic pressing (HIP).

A particular topic to be covered is the role of dopant segregation at interfaces on pore elimination, in particular addressing Complexions and related effects on kinetics and thermodynamics of sintering and grain growth. This is still a very active field in the community and this symposium will set a strong stage for discussions.

This year, a special session will be dedicated to HIP, focusing on consolidation of castings, metals and ceramics, as well as diffusion bonding of dissimilar materials like Ti/Stainless steel, Cu/Steel, etc., Applications range from Aerospace industry, Near-Net-Shape (NNS) parts for the oil&gas industry, Tool steels, Cermets, Metal Injection Moulding and Additive Manufacturing.
