The literature survey on sintering of binary oxide systems like U02-Th02 shows a
vast difference of opinion on the effect of composition on sintering of mixtures. Three
sets of U02-Th02 mixtures, varying in their powder characteristics, were sintered
between 1250oC and 1550°C for different soaking periods.
The results are explained on the basis of a proposed concept of sintering. This
concept, seems to adequately explain the large variations in the sintering behaviour of
such oxides, reported in this work as well as in the work of earlier authors.
