Micro-Scale Phenomena and Interface Dynamics

  • Doru Michael Stefanescu


Interface dynamics deals with phenomena occurring at scales smaller than the macro-scale used so far in our analysis of casting and solidification, but larger than the atomic scale. This scale is usually called micro-scale (micrometer size). Phenomena occurring at this scale determine the microscopic shape of the interface. The two fundamental phenomena that determine interface morphology are grain nucleation and grain growth.
