This paper demonstrates three-dimensional alignment of ß-FcSi2 in sintered bulk specimens. The three-dimensional alignment was achieved by using an oscillating magnetic field during slip-casting under a magnetic field of 6T. Sintering using direct electric current heating was performed in various conditions. The degree of alignment did not significantly degrade during sintering process. Apparent density became as high as 97%. The degree of alignment tended to increase as grain size increased.
