This paper describes the results of computer simulation of pressure sintering using Finite Element Analysis for isostatic as well as uniaxial pressing conditions. An effective pressure concept for obtaining analytical description of the densification rate in terms of porosity and the basic creep properties of the material is also presented. Equations are also derived to take into account the presence of friction at the die walls. Results of computer analysis are used to corroborate the theoretical derivations.
