Cyclic compaction of soft-hard powder mixtures
Cyclic compaction of powder mixtures has been shown to be more effective compared to â classicâ static compaction. The goal of this work was to understand cyclic compaction and identify the origin of the improved compressibility of brittle powders and their composites. In particular, we tried to detect systematic effects of particle size, and wall friction on green density and strength of composite powder mixtures. In this thesis we will discuss: a) a review of the existing literature, b) a
