Solidification of silicon in a one-dimensional slab and a two-dimensional wedge

Abstract:

We have developed mathematical models in both one and two spatial dimensions for the solidification of silicon. The one-dimensional model describes slab casting related to a set of thin-casting experiments. The model is fitted to thermocouple data and accounts for various heat transfer mechanisms as well as the latent heat. The model can be used to predict the time taken for the material to completely solidify and the solidification distance (the point where solidification fronts meet which c...
