Description: Solidification cracking (hot tearing) is a significant problem when casting various alloys, particularly highly alloyed compositions with a relatively large freezing range. Impurities which lead to low melting point segregates can also cause this problem.
Keywords: alloy • dendrite • hot tearing • metal • solidification cracking
