It is evident that the three transport phenomena, which are mentioned in the title of this section, are involved in structure formation during processing. In particular, flow is always engaged in mold filling. In one respect flow causes macroscopic heat and momentum transport. But it has also an enormous influence on the crystallization kinetics. Actually, crystallization is the consequence of transport on a micro-scale. It is rendered possible by rearrangements of molecules. However, these rearrangements are favored by flow. This seems obvious. But nobody would have expected that the influence of flow should be so tremendous.
