On the Solidification of Multicomponent Alloys



William J. Boettinger


Various topics taken from the author's research portfolio that involve multicomponent alloy solidification will be reviewed. Topics include: ternary eutectic solidification and Scheil-Gulliver paths in ternary systems. A case study of the solidification of commercial 2219 aluminum alloy will be described. Also described are modifications of the Scheil-Gulliver analysis to treat dendrite tip kinetics and solid diffusion for multicomponent alloys.
