    • Abstract


      Solidification at very high rates of cooling results in considerable refinement in the microstructure of alloys. It enables the formation of extremely fine grains, extends solid solubilities and leads to the nucleation of many metastable crystalline phases. We discuss briefly the methods of rapid solidification and their impact on microstructure and structure of alloys. Each of the aspects of structure development is illustrated with examples from steels.
