Solidification structure and segregation in iron-chromium-nickel alloys

1981 Transactions of the Iron and Steel Institute of Japan  
Synopsis The equilibrium distribution coefficients for chromium and nickel in the unidirectionally solidified iron-chromium-nickel alloys containing 5 to 20wt%Cr and 5 to 30wt%Ni were evaluated on the basis of the microsegregation ratio for the alloying elements. The solidification paths calculated from the values of the coefficients were in good agreement with those obtained experimentally. The primary arm spacing in the alloys was proportional to the square root of the inverse cooling rate.
