Abstract

A similarity solution for a multicomponent solidification model is introduced. The model includes a complete coupling of solute and temperature fields in the mushy region, a eutectic reaction. macrosegregation, microsegregation and fluid flow. The similarity solution is demonstrated on comparing its results with predictions obtained from a full numerical solution.
