Abstract

WE have recently introduced the idea of the liquid fraction value. As defined elsewhere1–4, this term indicates the quantitative fraction which a liquid at a certain stage of solidification occupies relative to the amount of initial liquid which for the liquid fraction value is taken as unity. As self-evident from the definition, the liquid fraction value never surpasses unity, and diminishes steadily as solidification or crystallization proceeds.
