Goal of thesis
In sintering, a pressed component (green body) is sintered to a solid in a sintering furnace. During pressing, among other things, a pressing aid is used to reduce friction. This is thermally removed from the green compact in the first furnace step, the so-called debinding.
The heating gradient, the gas flow around the component and the component geometry are decisive factors in this process. CFD simulations are currently being carried out to better understand this process. To validate the simulation model, measurements of the exhaust gas components escaping from the sintered part as a function of time, temperature, atmosphere and component geometry are required.
In the tendered work, a test facility for heating up green parts with different temperature gradients and different atmospheres including an exhaust gas measurement is to be built and operated.
