Abstract

Rapid Solidification Processing (RSP) has been applied to a wide range of alloys, and in limited cases to ceramics, to improve mechanical, electrochemical and physical properties for structural and non-structural applications. By RSP it is possible to produce metastable microstructures in materials which are not obtainable by conventional processing. The metastable structures in as-solidified materials are often useful for direct use, if the structures are sufficiently stable at the service temperature. Excellent examples of as-solidified magnetic and brazing alloys are described later in this chapter. As-solidified materials, however, are usually in particulate forms and are not immediately ready for most industrial applications, requiring subsequent consolidation to produce more useful, bulk forms. Additional thermal and/or thermomechanical processing may also be necessary to further adjust the microstructure for final use. Such secondary processing requires exposing the RSP material to elevated temperatures to effect diffusional processes required for structural changes in the material. The high metastability in as-solidified materials directly translates into a driving force for such structural changes. By applying appropriate secondary processing, we can control both the path and extent of the structural changes to produce a microstructure appropriate for a specific application.
