Nonequilibrium mechanism of spherical crystal growth in overcooled melts, regarding substance shrinkage



A model of single spherical crystal growth in overcooled melt with regard for substance shrinkage during hardening is represented. A quasistationary solution to the problem is found. It is shown that in the case of equal phase densities, the solutions obtained in this paper and those obtained earlier by other authors coincide.
