The shock compaction of ductile powders has been extensively studied experimentally for many years, but the direct simulation on the micromechanical level has only been possible relatively recently. While the experimental studies have provided an extensive body of data for phenomenological models on the macroscopic level, they have not been able to provide the detailed information necessary to design the shock compaction process so that good bonding is achieved. Recent theoretical advances combined with the direct numerical simulations have provided insight into bonding process.
