Abstract The homogeneous precipitation kinetics of the ordered phases Al 3 Zr and Al 3 Sc in Al solid solutions has been simulated at the mesoscopic scale by the cluster dynamics method. The polyatomic clusters, embedded in the solid solution, have an L1 2 structure and exchange solute atoms via absorption and emission reactions controlled by interfacial and long range diffusion. The time evolution of the cluster distribution is determined numerically, solving a set of master differential… CONTINUE READING
