Abstract

The electrical discharge compaction (EDC) process requires electrical, physical, and mathematical modeling and metallurgical investigations to gain insight into the parameters which govern the mechanism of consolidation. The process is affected by heat dissipation, current distribution, temperature distribution, fast sintering, and the influence of the rate of cooling on the microstructure of the material.
