Chapter 10 - 1 ISSUES TO ADDRESS... Transforming one phase into another takes time. How does the rate of transformation depend on time and T ? How can we slow down the transformation so that we can engineering non-equilibrium structures? Are the mechanical properties of non-equilibrium structures better?

Chapter 10 - 2 Phase Transformations Nucleation nuclei (seeds) act as template to grow crystals for nucleus to form rate of addition of atoms to nucleus must be faster than rate of loss once nucleated, grow until reach equilibrium Driving force to nucleate increases as we increase T supercooling (eutectic, eutectoid) superheating (peritectic) Small supercooling few nuclei - large crystals Large supercooling rapid nucleation - many nuclei, small crystals

Chapter 10 - 3 Solidification: Nucleation Processes Homogeneous nucleation nuclei form in the bulk of liquid metal requires supercooling (typically 80-300°C max) Heterogeneous nucleation much easier since stable “nucleus” is already present Could be wall of mold or impurities in the liquid phase allows solidification with only 0.1-10ºC supercooling

Chapter 10 - 4 r * = critical nucleus : nuclei < r * shrink; nuclei> r * grow (to reduce energy) Adapted from Fig.10.2(b), Callister 7e. Homogeneous Nucleation & Energy Effects G T = Total Free Energy = G S + G V Surface Free Energy- destabilizes the nuclei (it takes energy to make an interface) γ π = 2 4 r G S γ = surface tension Volume (Bulk) Free Energy stabilizes the nuclei (releases energy) υ π = G r G V 3 3 4 volume unit energy free volume = υ G

Chapter 10 - 5 Solidification T H T r S m γ - = 2 * Note: H = strong function of T γ = weak function of T r * decreases as T increases For typical T r * ca. 100Å H = latent heat of solidification T m = melting temperature γ = surface free energy T = T - T = supercooling r* = critical radius

Chapter 10 - 6 Rate of Phase Transformations Kinetics - measure approach to equilibrium vs. time Hold temperature constant & measure conversion vs. time sound waves – one sample electrical conductivity – follow one sample X-ray diffraction – have to do many samples How is conversion measured?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
