Abstract : The object of thi sstudy was to select commercial iron powders, determine their chemical and physical characteristics in both the as-received and annealed conditions; determine the correlations between the particle size distribution, particle shape, pressing, and sintering processes and the mechanical properties of sintered iron compacts over a range of densities from 5.0 to 7.0 grams per cc. Keywords: Powder metals.
