Abstract We consider the upward directional solidification of a dilute binary alloy in a tall, thin, two-dimensional slot. Heat losses from the sidewalls produce curved isotherms, interface deformations, and melt convection. We use an asymptotic approach which relates the small heat loss to the thinness of the solidification cell and solve for the resulting melt convection, interface deflection, and the distribution of heat and solute. The model is compared to the numerical results of Chang and… CONTINUE READING
