|Title:||Influence of sintering temperature on physical and mechanical properties of hydroxyapatite-calcium titanate composite|
Denis Russell Sweatman
|Abstract:||© 2019 Trans Tech Publications Ltd, Switzerland. This research is concerned with the effect of sintering temperature on physical and mechanical properties. This Hydroxyapatite-calcium titanate (HA-CT) composites were synthesized using conventional route technique. The HA-CT composites were sintered between 1200 up to 1300 °C. The effect of sintering temperature on the physical and mechanical properties of HA-CT composites was discussed. The physical properties were studied in term of densification and apparent porosity. As well as, the mechanical properties were determined in term of Vickers microhardness. The increasing of the sintering temperature increased both of the bulk density and the Vickers microhardness properties. However, the apparent porosity was decreased with increasing sintering temperature. The highest bulk density was found at 0.15 mol.% of CT in HA-CT composites which was sintered at 1300 °C for 3 h. Moreover, the mechanical properties as a function of the sintering temperature and the CT contents were also discussed and compared with other related work.|
