The base process was obtained: 3D hardening temperature field for the K-test under heat transfer at conditions with maximum intensity. A methodology for determining macro-level defects in aluminum alloys. It is definitely the placement of the K-test method in the process of creating the first order phase transition in a casting technology. The idea of interaction between the classical theory of crystallization and quantum mechanics for the processes of structure formation at casting was introduced by Stefan’s task in volume with nano-size.
