Constraints on the Melt Distribution in Anisotropic Polycrystalline Aggregates Undergoing Grain Growth


It has long been recognised that at elevated temperatures surface energy is the driving force for the distribution of melts and fluids among crystalline grains. While for ideal isotropic systems only two parameters, the dihedral angle (the ratio of grain boundary energy to solid-liquid surface energy) and the melt fraction are needed to completely constrain… (More)
