A method to judge the porosity distribution within complex powder compacted 3D structures using a dynamic 3D dilatant finite strain finite element program is presented. The method is demonstrated for a gear wheel, using a combined FKM Gurson model with parameters calibrated from experiments to model a ferrous powder. Compaction is pursued until a final average porosity of 3% in the gear. The method is shown successful in judging the influence on local as well as average properties from change in geometrical parameters and compaction speed. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd.
