Powder Metallurgy Internship Test

Intern has to take Powder Metallurgy internship test in which they will be asked 50 multiple-choice questions. They have to score grade A or A* on this test to be eligible for the internship. Here’s a sample set of questions on the Powder Metallurgy topic.

1. _______ is an exothermic combustion process that uses the heat generated during a reaction to sinter the material.
(B) Gas plasma sintering
(C) Spark plasma sintering
(D) Rate controlled sintering
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Self-propagating High-Temperature Synthesis (SHS) is an exothermic combustion process that uses the heat generated during a reaction to sinter the material. The process, although is very fast and economical, needs an additional densification step to make useful shapes and hence adds to cost and time.

2. Sintering can be considered as an irreversible thermodynamic process.
(A) True
(B) False
View Answer

Answer: A
Explanation: Sintering is an irreversible thermodynamic process because the change in surface free energy during sintering is irreversible.

3. Which of the following is not a mechanism of by which surface transportation occur during solid-state sintering?
(A) Plastic flow
(B) Volume diffusion
(C) Viscous flow
(D) Surface diffusion
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: In solid-state sintering, mass transportation can take place either by surface transportation, grain boundaries or bulk transportation. Surface transportation can occur through diffusion, adhesion or evaporation-condensation or by surface diffusion.

4. Diffusion occurs as a result of _______ gradient.
(A) Velocity
(B) Vacancy concentration
(C) Pressure
(D) Momentum
View Answer

Answer: B
Explanation: The vacancy concentration gradient is the reason for the diffusion process to occur. This vacancy concentration depends on temperature and chemical potential gradient which occurs due to stress acting on the metal surface.

5. According to ______, there are six stages of sintering.
(A) Schroter
(B) Nabarro and Herring
(C) Kuczynsky
(D) Hutteg
View Answer

Answer: D
Explanation: According to Hutteg, there are six stages of sintering for different increasing temperature regions that correspond to the dominance of different mechanisms such as adhesion along with particle rearrangement, surface diffusion, grain growth, lattice diffusion, recrystallization, and excessive grain growth respectively.
