The present lecture provides a fundamental knowledge of solidification, from the scientific to the engineering point of view, covering the recent development and future prospects. Basic concepts of driving force for solidification, undercooling, local equilibrium, and interface non-equilibrium are described. A detailed explanation is also made about dendritic and eutectic growth, as well as of peritectic, monotectic and behavior of third phase.
A fundamental knowledge of solidification, from the scientific to the engineering point of view, will be reviewed, covering the recent development and future prospects.
