Reanalysis of the 3D quasi-stationary grain size distribution based on Hillert's grain growth rate equation
- 64 Downloads
Based on Hillert's 3D grain growth rate equation, the grain growth continuity equation was solved. The results show that there are an infinite number of 3D quasi-stationary grain size distributions. This conclusion has gained strong supports from results of different computer simulations reported in the literature.
