This book contains papers on topics that range from experimental and theoretical investigations of microstructural aspects to processes such as continuous casting of steel and aluminum, directional solidification, single-crystal growth, laser-surface treatment, laser welding, and laser-metal forming. A valuable reference that reports the state-of-the-art in the field of solidification, this book will appeal to both engineers in solidification research and those in the metal-casting industry.

From 2004 TMS Annual Meeting to be held in Charlotte, North Carolina, March 14-18, 2004.
