Abstract

Micro to nano scale study of dendrite structure is important in order to have better properties control of casting product. The present study concerns on the morphological study of dendrite structure by phase-field simulation, in order to obtain the morphological growth of this structure that close its real morphology. Focus was given on the morphological growth of dendrite structure of Al-Si cast alloys, therefore thermodynamic data were taken for this type of materials. Anisotropy noise, strength of anisotropy and different undercooled conditions were applied as the variable parameters in the present works. It was observed that by introducing higher anisotropy noise, higher degree fragmentation of dendrite structure was obtained. Similar condition was obtained by introducing higher strength of anisotropy value, that higher degree of fragmentation was obtained. Both of these phenomena was also supported by the heat flux rate features of these variations that higher heat flux rate to almost all direction was obtained with the higher value of anisotropy noise and strength of anisotropy. In addition it was also observed that higher degree fragmentation of dendrite only possible to occur if sufficient undercooled condition established.
