## Abstract

Young's modulus (E) and tensile strength (S) of sintered steels depend mainly on porosity (P). The relations of P to E and S are described as E = (E_{0} - E_{sub})exp(- b_{E} · P) + E _{sub} and S = (S_{0} - S_{sub}) exp(- b_{s} · P)+S_{sub}, respectively, Where E_{0} and S_{0} mean the mechanical properties at P=0, E_{sub}, b_{E}, S _{sub}, and b_{s} are experimental constants. The E _{sub} and b_{E} are affected by pore characteristic, such as pore shape, size, and interconnection, and S_{0}, S_{sub}, and b_{s} depend on not only the pore characteristic but also metal matrix structure. The fitting curves of shear modulus and 0.2% proof stress used by the above relation of P also correspond to the measured values of them, respectively. And then, Poisson's ratio calculated by the above relatons of Young's and shear moduli correspond to the measured value in comparison with Poisson's ratio calculated by the fitting equation, the type of E = E _{0} exp(- b_{E} · P), of each modulus. Furthermore, the relationship between ln(S - S_{sub}) and ln(E - E_{sub}) of sintered steels shows the positive linear correlation.
