Abstract

The transformation of membrane channels during the sintering process conforms to the Rhines' topological decay model of intermediate sintering stage. The pore size of the membranes enlarges with the increase of sintering temperature. The pore size increment caused by the increase of sintering temperature is more obvious for thin membranes than for thick membranes. With the increase of sintering temperature, the water permeance of membranes increases at first and then decreases after a turning point of sintering temperature.
