We have successfully developed a computer simulation technique to design microstructural development such as sintering and grain growth of nano/micro-size particles by using the Monte Carlo (MC). The MC simulations were performed for the array of two- or three-dimensional lattices. Plural mechanisms of mass transport were introduced in the MC simulations of sintering and grain growth in ceramic systems, which involve a liquid phase and second solid particles. The MC simulation was applied to the microstructural development of sintering and grain growth at the solid state and in the presence of a liquid phase. The compound effects of the second particle, liquid phase and anisotropy were successfully analyzed by the MC simulations in order to design complex and important microstructures in ceramics. The MC simulations are useful for microstructural design on a lot of materials of grains and particles.
