Abstract

Two-dimensional cellular automata simulations were carried out to study the case of the crystallization (or recrystallization) of a matrix containing an inert, immobile second phase. A range of particle area fractions and aspect ratios were investigated under continuous grain nucleation conditions, assuming that the effect of particles is limited to geometric impingement upon contact with the growing grains. Systematic deviations from the classical Johnson, Mehl, Avrami, Kolmogorov equation for single-phase materials are observed with increasing particle aspect ratio and particle fraction. Inert particles also influence both mean size and mean aspect ratio of the final grains.
