A novel Monte Carlo model for the simulation of sintering processes is introduced. Different from previous models, local interface curvature is considered in the acceptance of diffusion steps. This enables the investigation of the effects of interface energies on the sintering process. Sintering paths are calculated for various microstructures and interface energies. Results are interpreted in the framework of thermodynamic criteria for homogeneous sintering processes which were presented recently.
