High-entropy alloys (HEAs) are receiving considerable attention since last decade because of their ability to give excellent strength with reasonably good elongation during fracture. The mechanical alloying followed by sintering is one of the routes for fabrication; however, there are limited reports on sintering mechanisms of HEA powders. The present investigation studies sintering mechanisms of CoCrFeNi alloy powders in as-milled and annealed conditions using dilatometer experiments. The annealed powder shows slower densification behavior and higher activation energy of sintering, compared to the as-milled powder. Diffusion coefficients were analyzed through sintering models and compared with literature data. The as-milled powder was found to exhibit mixed response, i.e., the grain boundary diffusion seems to be dominating initially due to a large grain boundary fraction but volume diffusion (VD) also contributes significantly, due to high defect concentration and metastable phases. VD was found to be the dominating mechanism during sintering of single phase, stable annealed powder. Copyright
