Compressibility and Compactibility of Metal Powders
This article describes several factors, which help in determining the compressibility of metal powders: particle shape, density, composition, hardness, particle size, lubrication, and compacting. It discusses the uses of annealing metal powders and describes compressibility testing of the powders. The article details green strength and its mechanism and the variables affecting the strength. It also discusses two test methods for determining the green strength: the Rattler test and the transverse bend test.
