Experimental data was obtained at various pressures and temperatures during hot isostatic pressing (Hip). Experimental data are compared with the finite element calculations by using the hybrid model and Abouaf model, respectively. The results show that the finite element calculation results by the hybrid model are in agreement with the experimental data for densification behaviour of the titanium alloy powder under Hip; however, the finite element calculation results by using the Abouaf model are over the experimental data. In addition, in order to obtaining relative density distributions of porous body, the statistical relationships during Poisson’s ratio, Rockwell hardness and the relative density of porous body were formulated, the results show that the statistical relationship between Poisson’s ratio and the relative density of porous body is essential to construct such a constitutive model; the statistical relationship between Rockwell hardness and the relative density of porous body is essential to obtain relative density distributions of porous body.
