Steady-state mushy layers: experiments and theory

Abstract:

A new facility has been developed to investigate the directional solidification of transparent aqueous solutions forming mushy layers in a quasi-two-dimensional system. Experiments have been conducted on NaCl-H2O solutions by translating a Hele-Shaw cell at prescribed rates between fixed heat exchangers providing a temperature gradient of approximately 1 °Cmm-1. The mush-liquid interface remained planar at all freezing velocities larger than 8 μm s-1, while steepling occurred at lower velocit...
