In the recent years the study of the nucleation due to the introduction of different shape and size nanoparticles in aluminium alloys have been studied. The critical angle needed for nucleation is going to be calculate for cubic, and pyramidal nanoparticles. Due to the complexity of the nucleation process, the wettability angle between the melted aluminium and the introduced reinforced nanoparticles was assumed to be constant. The use of this critical angle is proposed as a way of quantifying the nucleation feasibility for a specific nanoparticle geometry. Considering the theoretical calculations, a MATLABŪ code has been developed to understand how the particle is going to be absorbed by the growing nucleus. In case of pyramidal particles 60o is the unique possible case of nucleating angle. For cubicand spherical nanoparticles the complete study of the available range is going to be defined in the present work.
