Mg-Al alloy solidification

The 3D grain structure of an Mg-Al alloy after solidification will be simulated. Nucleation will be treated according to the model as described in dependent on the balance between heat extraction and release of latent heat during solidification. From the simulation the castability of the alloy dependent on the transient dendritic morphology will be evaluated.
