Description: Diffusion is an omnipresent, but the important phenomenon in a wide variety of disciplines and applications in physical, chemical, biological, geologic, materials science and engineering processes. While diffusion-controlled phase transformations involve in a variety of materials processes, ranging from solidification to different solid-state transformations. Modeling of diffusion and diffusion-controlled phase transformations in alloys has been of long-standing fundamental interests because advance modeling can help to improve the understanding of complex materials processes. Moreover, as the recent boost in Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) and Materials Genome Initiative (MGI) projects, additional emphasis on the necessity and urgency of the quantitative modeling of diffusion and diffusion-controlled phase transformations in alloys has been laying, which can provide useful information for accelerating the novel alloys design. Consequently, the purpose of this book, entitled "Modeling of Diffusion and Diffusion-Controlled Phase Transformations in Alloys" is to provide a collection of the commonly used computational approaches for modeling diffusion and diffusion-controlled phase transformations, as well as their current status, recent developments, future trends and applications in different alloys.

Description: The research on metals in their liquid state has been underestimated for a long time and the specific literature was scarce compared to those regarding solid metals. In the last twenty years, the situation has progressively changed and the matter has emerged as a fundamental area of investigation for physicists, metallurgists and materials scientists with consequent achievement of relevant results both on basic and applicative aspects. Today the description and the characterisation of molten metals and alloys is a wide and interdisciplinary topic and involves different approaches, from physics to technology, from processing to modelling.
The book is structured in review and research papers and offers the state-of-the-art information on physics, technological properties, processing and modelling of physical and technological behaviour of liquid metals and alloys.

Description: The results of many foreign and Hungarian researchers presented at the 6th International Conference on Solidification and Gravity, in Miskolc-Lillafüred, on September 2-5, 2013 have been collected in this volume. This conference series is aimed to attract all those having interest in the investigation and simulation of different types of solidification processes and both micro- and macro-gravity effects. Within the framework of the conference a MICAST meeting (Microstructure Formation in Casting of Technical Alloys under Diffusive and Magnetically Controlled Convective Conditions) was organized on September 5-6, 2013. The 2013 conference was a memorial one for Professor Hans Eckart Exner and Professor Erik György Fuchs who had died in the period between the previous (2008) and the last (2013) conference.
