The melt-filled pore structure in the final stages of solidification of cumulates must lie somewhere between the two end-members of impingement (in which pore topology is controlled entirely by the juxtaposition of growth faces of adjacent grains) and textural equilibrium (in which pore topology is controlled by the minimization of internal energies). The exact position between these two end-members is controlled by the relative rates of crystal growth and textural equilibration. For samples in… CONTINUE READING
