Abstract : This report discusses the powder metallurgy of beryllium from the preparation of powders through the production from the powders of solid products. Various methods of powder compaction are presented including die pressing, isopressing, slip casting, vibration packing and explosive compaction. Sintering, and methods of elevated temperature consolidation, including vacuum hot pressing, hot isostatic pressing, forging, extrusion, and plasma spraying, are discussed. The final sections of the report cover properties of powder beryllium products, applications of beryllium prepared by powder metallurgy and current trends in the powder metallurgy of beryllium.
