Abstract:The topic of this chapter is that of effects of an external constraint of rotation on convection, driven mainly by compositional buoyancy, in a porous layer adjacent to the solid-liquid interface during directional solidification of a binary alloy. In solidification literature such a porous layer is referred to as a mushy layer. The analyses carried out by several studies in the past on the subject of this chapter and the subsequent results are reviewed first, the latest results unpublished elsewhere are presented briefly, and then in the second-half of the chapter, investigation of effects of rotation on convection in a horizontal porous layer of melt and dendrite solids is carried out subject to a simple model. The results based on this simple model indicate that Coriolis force can have stabilizing effects on both stationary and oscillatory mode of convection, while the oscillatory mode of convection experiences an additional destabilization due to the Coriolis force effect.
