||This symposium is focused on providing a forum for emerging developments in experimental, analytical, and computational solidification science and engineering. Some of the areas to be explored include: Fundamentals of solidification (grain nucleation and interface kinetics), Microstructure development, Mushy zone dynamics, Multi-scale phenomena, In-situ observation, and Thermo-physical-mechanical properties of semi-solids.
Abstracts are requested that demonstrate the application of fundamental transient phenomena (phase transformation, fluid flow, semi-solid deformation; both experimental and modelling) and novel characterization methods. Each speaker will be asked to, within their talk, highlight the industrial or societal importance of their research findings. Each speaker will be asked to include a slide within their presentation explicitly highlighting the industrial or societal importance of their research findings. The topics of “defects” is excluded as it is covered in a different symposium.
