Prediction of Solid-Liquid Interface Stability and Dendritic Growth in Multi-Component Alloys with Calphad Method
A method to predict the solid-liquid interface stability and the constrained dendrite growth of multi-component alloys was developed based on the Calphad method. The method was applied to several industrial Al-Si-Mg alloys, and the predicted results were compared with some former experimental data. The good agreement between the calculation results and the experimental data demonstrates the superiority of the present method to the classical one based on constant parameter assumptions.
