Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Abstract

    WC-6Co cemented carbide was manufactured successfully by coupled multi-physical fields activated technology with the Gleeble-1500 thermal simulation equipment for the reason of studying the effect of sintering temperature on the densification and microstructures of samples sintered under multi-physical fields. And the results demonstrate that the densification is better with the increasing of sintering temperature. The best density about 98.76% is obtained with the sintering temperature of 1200℃. Besides, both the number of closed pores in microstructure and the value of hardness of samples decrease obviously as increasing of temperature.
