The object of this research is to produce and characterise some
coated powers for use in the powder metallurgy and related
industries. The study introduces very briefly general powder
metallurgy techniques and raw materials.
A review of coating techniques is given, followed by a discussion of
techniques for handling particulate substrates in chemical reaction
systems. A discussion of the fluidised bed chemical reactor and
electrode, and mechanically stirred vessels is presented. [Continues.]
A Doctoral Thesis. Submitted in partial fulfilment of the requirements for the award of Doctor of Philosophy at Loughborough University.
