Alpha factor

The α-factor is used to predict the solid–liquid interface type of a material during solidification. ==Method== According to John E. Gruzleski in his book Microstructure Development During Metalcasting (1996): α = (L/k*TE)*(η/v) where L is latent heat of fusion k is Boltzmann’s constant TE is equilibrium freezing temperature η is the numbe...
