Effects of Coriolis and Centrifugal Forces on the Melt during Directional Solidification of a Binary Alloy
Nonlinear solutal convection in a melt with a planar solidifying surface and subjected to rotational effects due to both Coriolis and centrifugal forces was investigated in the limit of small segregation. An evolution equation was derived governing the cellular structure of the flow of a binary alloy. The effects due to both Coriolis and centrifugal forces on the flow of the melt and on the onset of cellular structure were determined asymptotically.
