Interaction of Non-Metallic Inclusion Particles with Advancing Solidification Front

Open access


This work deals the phenomenon interaction of crystallization front on the particles of non-metallic precipitates. The behavior of a single particle in the vicinity of horizontal and vertical front was analyzed. The forces acting on the particle were characterized and the equilibrium condition formulated, from which the critical velocity of front may be deduced. The calculation results were illustrated in the form of graphs.
