Coupled region and area fraction of primary phases in Sb-InSb eutectic alloys

  • M. J. Suk

Unidirectional solidification of Sb-InSb alloys, 26-34wt% In, was carried out in the range of growth rate 1.2 × 10−4 to 1.2 × 10−1 cms−1 and with a temperature gradient 57° C cm−1. An explanation is given which relates the coupled region with quantitative data concerning the primary phases, e.g. the area fraction and the protrusion length ahead of the eutectic interface. The coupled region can be constructed with reasonable accuracy from those quantities measured. The estimated coupled region is in qualitative agreement with the experimental result.
