The Application of Some Probability Density Functions on Heterogeneous Nucleation
Probability density functions of known statistical distributions (Gauss, Weibull, lognormal) have been used to describe the nucleation of grains during solidification. Empirical nucleation data for solidification of cast iron follow a model based on the lognormal distribution.
