The general form for the shape factor of any shape is:

Ks = (DeA) / V


Ks : Shape Factor

De : Equivalent Diameter of a sphere with a volume equal to the volume of the non-spherical particle

A : Area of the shape

V : Volume of the shape

By setting the equation for the volume of a sphere and the volume of the shape in question (in this case a cylinder) we can find De.

De = ((3/4) r2 h)(1/3)

De : Equivalent Diameter

D : Diameter of the cylinder

h : height of cylinder

Substituting the formula for the area and volume of a cylinder and the De into the general form will give us the shape factor for a cylinder.

What is the difference between calcination temperature and sintering temp?

calcination - basically is a single step heating process where it determines either further heat treatment (sintering) is necessary or not. For example, let say BaTiO3. the reaction between BaO and TiO3 definitely will produced BaTiO3 without having intermediate phase. Although, secondary phase might presence, however, it may decrease with increasing calcination temperature. By the way, if the intermediate phase is a must for next reaction, then calcination has to be followed by sintering process (to provoke further reaction). Sintering is well-known in whiteware as to produce solid body by particle diffusion. However, regards to the calcination process which is formation of intermediate reaction need to be undergo sintering process to ensure all those reaction occur in calcination process are completely reacted to form another a very stable phase.

What is sinter?

Sintering is a process used when manufacturing ceramic or steel objects. The method of sintering is when objects are made from small particles being heated in a furnace below their solid state, which cause the particles to weld to each other.

What is binder burnout and sintering?

In ceramic processing, polymers are often added to ceramic particles to allow for higher densities and sufficient green strength. The green body, or pre-fired ceramic, must have sufficient strength to hold its shape after being pressed. Binder burnout is a processing step performed before sintering, where the green body is heated until the polymer binder is burned out of the ceramic. Sintering is the process by which ceramics are densified. Sintering is done because ceramics have very high melting temperatures and reactive melts. In sintering, the green ceramic is heated to a high temperature, below the melting point of the ceramic, where high rates of diffusion are possible. The ceramic particles are joined into a solid monolith through diffusional movement of atoms.
