Study of Macrosegregation Defects Formation Caused by Double Diffusive Convective Flow during Solidification of a Binary Alloy
Numerical study of both the solidification of the binary alloy Al-4.1%wtCu and macrosegregation defects formation have been carried out. The mixture continuum model was used in the development of the mathematical model representing the solidification phenomena. This model included the conservative equations (mass, momentum, energy and species); these equations were numerically solved by using a finite volume approach.
