The solubilities of gases in solid metals are much lower than liquid metals. 22 shows the solubility of hydrogen in copper and copper-aluminum alloys. 22 Solubility of hydrogen in iron and nickel as a function of temperature. (Adapted from A. G. ) Freezing 29 Because of the lower solubility in the solid, gas bubbles are released at the liquid– solid interface as the metal freezes. With long dendrites, the gas bubbles are trapped and the result is gas porosity. With short dendrites, elongated tubes of gas (worms) may form.

The first solid to form contains 2% B. As the system is cooled, newly formed solid will contain ever-increasing amounts of B. An unrealistically slow cooling rate (years or centuries per degree) would be required to allow enough time for diffusion to eliminate these concentration gradients. It is more reasonable to assume that there is no mixing in the solid but there is perfect mixing in the liquid. 9a. Let x denote the position of the solid–liquid interface and let length of the mold be L so that the fraction solid fS = x/L and the fraction liquid is fL = 1 - fS = (L - x)/L.

5 Approximation of the variation of erf(y) with y. For y £ -1, erf(y) = -1; for y ≥ 1, erf(y) = 1; for -1 £ y £ 1, erf(y) = y. 6 Solution to Fick’s second law for two solutions with different concentrations. 3 HOMOGENIZATION Interdendritic segregation during solidification causes local composition variations that can be approximated by a sine wave of wavelength, 2x and amplitude, comax. 7. Defining c and co as the differences between local concentrations and the average composition, the extent of homogenization is described by È Ê p ˆ2˘ c x .
