Abstract: Mechanical Alloying (MA) is a ball milling process where a powder mixture placed in a ball mill is subjected to high-energy collision from the balls. The process leads to repetitive plastic deformation, fracturing and cold welding of the powders.Diffusion is a fundamental process during mechanical alloying. In this thesis, a mathematical model, taking into consideration the critical factors which influence the diffusion process during MA, has been developed to predict the kinetics of diffusive intermixing in a binary miscible system during MA.Comparison between the kinetics predicted by the present model with the relevant experimental data from Ni-Al shows that changes in composition and completion time of diffusion are in good agreement.
