Channel segregation during columnar solidification: influence of inertia

Abstract : The numerical prediction of channel segregations during two-dimensional columnar solidification of Sn-Pb alloy is analyzed when inertia is considered in the dendritic mushy zone. This contribution is included in the momentum transport equation through the quadratic Forchheimer correction term. A significant influence of the Forchheimer term in the vicinity of the liquidus region is found. The natural convective flow field and therefore the global shape of the mushy zone are modified giving rise to significant decrease of channel segregation, due to additional drag in these regions.
