    2002.04Microstructure of polycrystalline silicon is investigated through the unidirectional solidification technique, and the mechanism of the twin growth on a reentrant corner is evaluated. The model of two dimensional nucleation on the reentrant corner is established and their critical nucleation radiuses are calculated from 70 to 80 % of radius of general two-dimensional nucleation. Reducing the undercooling dew to the twin growth can explain the reasons of increasing the gain size..
  • Microstructural Control of Ceramic Reinforced Metals by the Solidification Processing
    keyword : composites, dislocation, ceramics, diffusivity,
    1994.04Directional solidification studies is carried out in continuous alumina fiber reinforced Al-Cu alloy composites in order to clarify the influences of fibers on crystal growth of matrix alloy in the composites. A model based on the continuity of liquid phase among fibers reveals how fibers influence both the concentration of copper on the dendrite tips and the size of the lateral solute diffusion field..
  • computer simulation for crystal growth of metal matrix composites
    keyword : composites, thermal diffusion, cast, simulation, wear resistant, micro segregation
    1997.04~2009.03Numerical simulation is applied to evaluate the thermal and solutal influences of fibers on the dendrite growth of matrix alloy reinforced with continuous fibers. The results of temperature and solute distribution, and dendrite tip undercooling and tip radius were compared with experimental data obtained from directional solidification studies for fiber reinforced succinonitrile-acetone alloy composites. Numerical analysis reveals that tip composition and undercooling increased as the fiber interstices became smaller than the primary dendrite arm spacing. The constraint of growth on the secondary arm and the change of dendrite morphology are also shown in the analysis..
