AbstractIn-situ neutron diffraction and thermal analysis techniques were used to evaluate the kinetics of the non-equilibrium solidification process of a hypereutectic Al-Si alloy using NRU nuclear reactor in Chalk River, ON and HFIR reactor in Oak Ridge National Lab, TN. Neutron diffraction patterns were collected in the stepwise mode during solidification between 740 and 400 degrees C. The variation of intensity of the diffraction peaks was analysed and compared with the results of a conventional cooling curve analysis. it was shown that neutron diffraction offers potential for high resolution liquid and semi-solid microstructure analysis and can be used for novel studies on grain refining, eutectic modification, etc.
