A computational method for the design of directional alloy solidi cation processes is addressed such that a desired growth velocity vf under stable growth conditions is achieved. An externally imposed magnetic eld is introduced to facilitate the design process and to reduce macrosegregation by the damping of melt ow. The design problem is posed as a functional optimization problem. The unknowns of the design problem are the thermal boundary conditions. The cost functional is taken as the square… CONTINUE READING
