Powders of chemically incompatible, no wetting ceramic-metal systems have been compacted into dense structures by applying the Rapid Omni directional Compaction (ROC) technique. The quasi-adiabatic conditions of compaction cause a temperature spike which is useful for controlling the kinetics of chemical reactions and the final composition of prepared materials. A model has been developed to predict the maximum temperature increase during compaction based on the composition of starting powders, the green density of the powder compact, the initial compaction temperature, and the applied pressure.
