Abstract: Rapid Solidification Processing (RSP), of metals and alloys, is establish by increasing of the undercooling applying high cooling rates (102 - 106 K/s) or by reduce nucleation sites using low cooling rates (1 K/s). Melt undercooling opens new solidification pathways for new nonequilibrium phases and unusual microstructures. Several techniques have been developed to reduce nucleation sites and produce increased undercooling in metals and alloys including the fluxing technique. The aim of this paper is to study the influence of the undercooling level on microstructures of eutectic Sn-57wt%Bi alloy by using the fluxing technique. A morphological change from eutectic to eutectic plus primary dendrites bSn was observed when the undercooling increase from 10 K to 19 K and a refinement of the primary dendrites bSn was observed when the undercooling increase from 19 K to 29 K. Increasing the undercooling led to a higher growth rate, hence morphological refinement occur.

Abstract: The upper bound for the production of uniform amorphous ribbons during free-jet melt spinning is predicted by coupling a mass balance condition for the melt-pool with a simple boundary layer model for momentum transfer. The relationships between melt-pool length, ribbon thickness and wheel speed are investigated, and a criterion is developed for the onset of unsteady melt-pool behavior, which has previously been associated with increased surface roughness, porosity, and the formation of crystalline phases at high wheel speeds.
