Abstract:Mechanofusion (MF) is a unique high energy powder processing technique, in which powder characteristics can be significantly modified. The effects of MF on powdered materials depend on MF operating conditions and the starting powders. This paper proposes a preliminary MF modeling concept to develop quantitative relationships among MF variables and their effects. In the modeling, an inner piece "action zone" is defined. It is believed that most MF effects are generated when the particles pass through the action… Show more
