Abstract

The growth of several cemented carbides was analysed by means of probabilistic models. These models are mathematical models and do not depend on physical parameters. Then, they could allow to describe primary grains and to follow their evolution during sintering without any experimental assumptions. Nevertheless, probabilistic models do not apply easily to the coarsening of carbides with spherical grains such as TiC—Ni and TiC—Co.
