Rod eutectic growth in bulk undercooled melts


This article proposes an analytical model to understand the rod growth of eutectic in the bulk undercooled melt. Based on the previous derivations of the lamellar eutectic growth models, relaxing the assumptions of small Péclet numbers, the model is derived by considering melt kinetic and thermal undercoolings. The intent of this model is to predict the transitions in eutectic pattern for conditions of the low and high growth velocities. In addition to investigation of the transition between lamellar and rod eutectic patterns, mathematical simplifications of solving Bessel function are presented as well, which is the most important priority to model calculation. © 2021 The Authors.
