Corundo-baddeleyit material (CBM) -EUCOR -is a heat-and wear-resistant material even at extreme temperatures. This article introduces an original numerical model of solidification and cooling of this material in a non-metallic mold. The second, cooperating model of chemical heterogeneity and its application on EUCOR samples prove that the applied method of measuring the chemical heterogeneity provides the detailed quantitative information on the material structure and makes it possible to
