The research program had the following major objectives 1 To determine the transport mechanisms which control the sintering of a representative group of metal oxides 2 To relate the observed sintering mechanisms to fundamental properties of the solids vapor pressure, diffusion coefficients, deviations from stoichiometric composition 3 To investigate the role of whisker growth in metal oxides on their sintering behavior 4 To assess the influence of surface effects on sintering in oxide compounds.
