The analysis of natural convection for moderate and high Prandtl numbers in a
fluid-saturated porous layer heated from below and subject to vibrations is presented with a
twofold objective. First, it aims at investigating ...
Two effects that have been observed when metals and metal alloys are vibrated during
solidification are a decrease in dendritic spacing, which directly affects density, and faster
cooling rates and associated solidification ...

Directional solidification has a wide interest due to its importance to the iron and steel
industry. Examples of further application can be found in the aerospace industry
regarding the manufacture of turbine blades and ...
