The model developed for sintering of a bimodal pore‐size distribution is generalized to describe an arbitrary distribution. The model is further extended to allow for the presence of nonsintering (i.e., rigid) inclusions. This analysis uses the self‐consistent approach that takes account of the local stresses created by differential sintering rates.
