Solidification of Intermetallic Compounds

  • H. Assadi (a1) and A. L. Greer (a1)


Kinetic modelling, incorporating variation in the degree of chemical order, is developed for the solidification of intermetallic compounds, and qualitative comparisons are made with experiment. It is found that a disordered phase can be obtained other than by the process of disorder trapping, and that partitioning can increase or invert with increasing solidification velocity. Solid-state ordering and its effects on final microstructure are also considered.
