Phanikumar, G and Chattopadhyay, K (2001) Solidification microstructure development. In: Sadhana, 26 (1&2). pp. 25-34.
In the present article, evolution of microstructure during solidification, as a function of various parameters, is discussed. Macrosegregation is described as being due to insufficient diffusivity of solute in the solid. Pattern formation is discussed in the light of instabilities at the solidification growth front. An overview of the scaling relations for various microstructures is given. Metastable extensions to equilibrium phase diagrams and corrections to equilibrium quantities are described.
