Paper Title:
Effect of Travelling Magnetic Field on the Directional Solidification of Refined Al-3.5 wt%Ni Alloys
  Abstract

The specific objective of the paper is to investigate the effect of fluid flow on the development of a dendritic microstructure and more particularly on the columnar and equiaxed solidification regimes. A gradient furnace (BATMAF) with a possibility of applying a travelling magnetic field was designed for the solidification of aluminium-based alloys. The travelling magnetic field (TMF) drives a forced flow in the liquid above the solidifying interface. Some experiments are achieved in this furnace on an Al-Ni3.5wt% refined alloy. As a result, a significant change of the microstructure due to the transversal melt flow is observed. This work is performed in the framework of the CETSOL/MICAST Microgravity Application Projects of the European Space Agency (ESA).
