Paper Title:
MICAST – Microstructure Formation in Casting of Technical Alloys under Diffusive and Magnetically Controlled Convective Conditions
  Abstract

The MICAST research program focuses on a systematic analysis of the effect of convection on the microstructure evolution in cast Al-alloys. The experiments of the MICAST team are carried out under well defined thermally and magnetically controlled, convective boundary conditions and analyzed using advanced diagnostics and theoretical modeling, involving phase field simulation, micro-modeling and global simulation of heat and mass transport. The MICAST team uses binary, ternary and technical alloys of the Al-Si family. This paper gives an overview on recent experimental results and theoretical modelling of the MICAST team.
