  • G. S. Upadhyaya Formerly Professor, IIT Kanpur; IISS Member; Materials Consultant, Ravindrapuri Colony


In honor of 50th anniversary of publication of Science of Sintering, we bring you a special review article on the development and current state of the sintering theory. Development of sintering theory in the 20th century is outlined and placed into context of modern materials science and recent technological developments. The author looks to converge different approaches to sintering stemming from different fields of materials science and show the potential and the necessity for a single theoretical approach to sintering.
