The formation of solidification structures

Part of the Engineering Materials and Processes book series (EMP)


Metals and alloys are almost always processed in the liquid state at some stage during their manufacture. Subsequent solidification leads to characteristic microstructures, whose examination enables identification of the mechanisms involved The effects may sometimes persist even after lengthy hot and cold working sequences, so that it is important to closely control the solidification conditions.
