Abstract : The dendrite spacing in tin-lead alloys, solidified vertically under steady-state conditions, was measured as a function of the rate of growth R, the temperature gradient in the liquid G sub L, and the amount of solute lead. All these growth parameters were varied independently. The dendrite spacing decreases as R and G sub L increase, and increases as the lead content increases. (Author)
