This program is being conducted for the purpose of developing a predictive model of heat flow and solidification for aluminum alloys produced under the high cooling rate conditions achievable in rotary atomization and laser surface melting. It is a combined experimental and theoretical study of the relationship between the important solidification variables e.g. cooling rate, temperature gradients, interface shape and velocity, super-cooling and transformation kinetics and the structure and microchemistry of rapidly solidified aluminum alloys.
