27 - November 30, 2012 in Kiev ("KPI", Engineering Physics Department) was held international conference "Powder Metallurgy: today and tomorrow" is dedicated to the sixtieth of Frantsevich Institute for Problems of Materials Science of NASU, National Academy of Science, Ukraine
Conference PM 2012 "Powder Metallurgy: today and tomorrow"
PM 2012 conference focused on the following issues: fundamental problems of the powders, the processes of powder materials formation, the influence of the solid-and liquid-phase sintering of powder on the products properties, technology of powder products obtaining, and nanotechnologies in powder metallurgy, the high-pressure, abrasive materials, testing the powder materials properties.
At the conference Director of Materials Research Centre Oleksiy Gogotsi presented a report

While developing a complex of equipment, ordered by American Energy Technologies Co, for the processing and receiving of graphitized and partially graphitized pure carbon materials, there was a problem to choose the thickness of details and parts of equipment. That equipment can be under the influence of the coke particles flow, moving at different speeds and acting with different pressures. Also there was a need to compare wear of ordinary structural steel 3 and stainless steel AISI 304.
Wear of steel parts is well simulated by abrasive wear test, that was done on the immovable ring type facility.
