Diffusion kinetics and some aspects of solidification under microgravity environment
The paper surveys the available literature on the direct influence of microgravity on diffusion in liquid metals, rate of solidification, growth of dendrites, undercooling of liquid metals and alloys and monotectic solidification. Agreement between theoretical predictions and experimental observations is discussed critically and areas requiring further study are highlighted.
