At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.
To give fundamentals on phenomena occurring at crystallisation of melts and gases.
Course main content
After completed course the student will have knowledge of:
- Crystallisation kinetics of melts and gases.
- Influence of the boundary structure on the kinetics.
- Forced dissolution in solid phase during crystallisation.
- Sub cooling of melts, homogeneous and heterogeneous nucleation in melts and gases.
- Facetted and dendritic growth, transition between these morphologies.
- Eutectic and peritectic reactions and transitions between these reactions in multi-component systems.
- Analysis of technically important crystallisation processes.
- Directional solidification in theory and practice.
- Production of a favourable texture.
- Single crystals.
- Composite materials.
- Thermal analysis.
- Directional solidification.
