Numerical modelling of liquid metal transport in partially molten H5 ordinary chondrite

By Nick Petford, Tracy Rushmer and G. Lansdown


An equation-based model of liquid metal segregation in Fe-bearing chondrite meteorites is presented. Textural data from natural samples provide the input conditions. Initial results confirm porous flow of Fe-Ni-S liquid alloy as an important metal segregation mechanism in planetary interiors
