Solidification in small volume

  • 1 Bulgarian Academy of Sciences Institute of Metal Science, Equipment and Technologies with Center for Hydro and Aerodynamics Acad. Angel Balevski


Model results of solidification processes as a bridge between individual sciences are presented. There is a historical analysis of the development of knowledge and methodologies in different sciences. A methodological scientific approach has been used. It is proposed to develop known scientific methodologies with the expansion of new results. Representations are modeling results in low volume solidification. These tasks are convenient in a mathematical description of an additive approach.
