The cooling curve analysis (CCA) has been used extensively in the metal casting industry, usually to predict alloy composition and microstructure constituents. The use of CCA can be expanded to other areas of solidification if the zero curves can be properly calculated. In this paper the Newtonian and Fourier techniques of zero curve determination are… CONTINUE READING
