General information

Name of the project: Prospective technologies of creation of new materials

Strategy for Scientific and Technological Development Priority Level: а

Goals and objectives

Research directions: Powder metallurgy, study of electromagnetic methods of compaction of materials, alloys and ceramics, research of structural and phase state of ceramics  

Project objective: Creation and development of modern research laboratory of electromagnetic methods of consolidation of new materials for research of cutting-edge technologies of spark-plasma sintering, microwave sintering, high-voltage pulse compacting and magnetic pulse consolidation of powders.

The practical value of the study

  • For the first time in the world a methodology for direct multi-scale modeling processes of sintering.
  • We have developed a brand new experimental approach to multi-stage dilatometry under pressure that can be efficiently used for finding out the main mechanism of spark-plasma sintering.
  • Our researchers have clarified the vision of interparticle thermal balance in the processes of spark-plasma sintering and high-voltage compacting.
  • We have proposed original ideas on impact of geometry of interparticle contacts on efficiency of spark-plasma sintering.
  • We were the first to develop fully-connected finite element models of the process of high temperature pressing activated by Joule heating.
  • For the first time in the world practice we have proposed models of mass transfer in microwave sintering under impact of ponderomotive forces.
  • We have described physics of compaction in the process of magnetic impulse pressing.
  • Our researchers have found and researched the wave mode of kinetics of compaction for high-voltage consolidation of powder materials.
  • We have produced experimental samples of biodegradable implants based on the «magnesium – bone substance» composite.
  • Our researchers have developed modes of compaction of specimens made of tantalum powder for capacitors using high voltage electric pulse compacting.

Implemented results of research: Results of research of compaction of current-conducting of nitride ceramics based on TiN, ZrN were used for completing the contract «Technological and materials science research of prospective construction materials» with JSC «High-tech Research Institute of Inorganic Materials named after academician A. A.Bocharov» (VNIIM) in 2013.

Education and career development:

  • The Laboratory has organized internships for students and postgraduates at the SinterLand company (Japan, 2012) and the Technical University of Denmark (2013). 
  • We have conducted scientific seminars: CimTec-2014, Montecatini Terme (Italy, 2014), «Prospective Technologies in Consolidation Using Electromagnetic Fields» (Russia, 2012–2017).
  • 1 candidate dissertation has been defended.
  • The Laboratory has developed lecture courses for bachelors, masters and postgraduates: «Cutting-edge methods of usage of modeling of sintering processes», «Modeling technological processes», «Theory and technologies of powder consolidation», «Modern powder metallurgy».
  • The Laboratory has developed the «Powder metallurgy» lecture course for the Coursera online education platform.
