Example text

Alternatively, also shown in the figure, parts of the flow can impinge, as droplets falling back into the liquid. In both cases the film necessarily comes together dry side to dry side. The submerged surface films are therefore necessarily always double. Also, of course, because of the negligible bonding across the dry opposed interfaces, the defect now necessarily resembles and acts as a crack. Turbulent pouring of liquid metals can therefore quickly fill the liquid with cracks. The cracks have a relatively long life, and in many alloys can survive long enough to be frozen into the casting.

If we place this liquid in an evacuated enclosure then the liquid will find itself out of equilibrium with respect to the environment above the liquid. It is supersaturated with respect to its environment. It will then gradually lose its hydrogen atoms from solution, and these will combine on its surface to form hydrogen molecules, which will escape into the enclosure as hydrogen gas. 2 Hydrogen content of liquid aluminum bronze held in a gas-fired furnace, showing how the melt equilibrates with its surroundings.

It cannot make any sense to consider it being ‘broken’. Another closely related misconception describes ‘the breaking of the surface oxide’, implying that this is some kind of problem. However, the surface oxide, if a solid film, is always being broken during normal filling. This must occur as the liquid surface expands to form waves and droplets. However, the film is being continuously reformed as fresh liquid surface is created. 2a). 3 Entrainment of solids into liquid metals: (a) the introduction of melt charge materials; (b) optimum production of MMCs; (c) usual production of MMCs.
