Penetration of molten silicon into a bed of fines

Abstract:

During the casting process of silicon the mould must be buffered from the high temperatures of the molten silicon to prevent the mould melting and this is typically done by the operators laying down a layer of crushed silicon particles (fines) prior to pouring of the molten silicon. It is useful for operators to know how deep they should make the layer the fines so as to adequately separate the molten silicon from the mould. In this paper, we consider a model for the penetration of molten sil...
