Abstract:

Conventional liquid phase sintering has been the mainstay for processing tungsten alloy composites for the past several decades. New application demands being placed on these high density composites have resulted in the emergence of new processing approaches aimed at developing a new generation of high density tungsten composite materials. Recent investigative studies into rapid solidification technology, solid state sintering, mechanical alloying, and explosive compaction are reported here to highlight these recent processing trends.
