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.
