Abstract

A numerical method is used to analyze the rapid solidification of subcooled internally nucleated spheres including capillarity and attachment kinetic effect. The results indicate that the stability of the solid/liquid interface can be enhanced either by increasing the subcooling or by decreasing the kinetic coefficient. Although the kinetic effect markedly affects the rate of the growth throughout the entire solidification process, the magnitude of the kinetic coefficient affects the total solidification times only weakly.
