. An improvement of the Brody & Flemings theory has been proposed to study not only the solute segregation but the solute redistribution during the single crystal growth as well. The redistribution is treated as a phenomenon superposed upon the segregation phenomenon. The crystal growth has been performed by the closed Bridgman system with a constant growth rate and an imposed temperature gradient. A hypo-eutectic Zn-Ti alloy has been subjected to oriented growth and precipitation of the Zn-16Ti intermetallic compound was observed. The precipitates have been placed as some layers distributed within the single crystal with a constant spacing. Some data from the Zn-Ti binary phase diagram was introduced into the theory to show possibility of the control the phenomenon of the reinforcement by precipitation during a single crystal growth.
