    Topic of Research

    During solidification of some alloys equiaxed grains form, grow and move. Small grains are carried with the melt flow, while with further growth grains often sink down and sediment. When the system is a rotating frame of reference, inertial forces appear to act on both liquid and solidified phases. The ideal candidate will explore the effects of inertial forces (centrifugal/Coriolis/Euler) on the dynamics of flow-solidification interaction.

    The different solidification morphologies such as columnar, globular, equiaxed and their transitions will be considered. Vibration and relative movement between liquid and solidified phases will be considered. The investigations will focus on the solidification-buoyancy-rotating flows interactions. Indeed, the interplay of rotation, thermosolutal convection and inertia forces in the rotating frame may result in various solidification and macrosegregation structures.
