    The goalThe course is designed to allow extending of the acquired knowledge in the field of solidification of metals. In this course the mechanism of nucleation and growth, and mathematical analysis of the changes that occur on the solid/liquid interface at different solidification conditions, well be studied.
    The outcomeBy acquiring fundamental knowledge in the field of solidification of metals, students will be able to understend the complex changes that occur during solidification process. Understending the mechanism of nucleation and growth, on the one hand, and knowledge of mathematical analysis of the changes that occur on the solid/liquid interface, on the other, will allow students to design precisely defined solidification microstructures.
    Contents of lecturesIn this course well be studied: ; Nucleation. Faceted and nonfaceted structures. Diffusion controlled growth. Dendrite growth. Mathematical analysis of dendrite growth. Multiphase growth. Heat transfer theory and modeling of solidification process. Segregation. Microsegregation. Macrosegregation. Gases in the metal. Classification of gases. Solubility of gases. Kinetics of gas reactions. Rapid solidification. Nucleation and undercooling. Rapid solidification and microstructure. Morphological stability and growth rate. The theory of rapid solidification and structure prediction. Solidification during welding and laser processing. Solidification and structure of cast steel. Solidification and structure of iron. Solidification and structure of cast aluminum alloys. Grain refinement. Modification. Inoculation. ;
