The Interaction of Migrating Liquid Inclusions with Grain Boundaries in Solids

  • T. R. Anthony

Abstract

A liquid droplet on a planar grain boundary in a solid is in a position of minimum energy since the grain boundary area must increase if the droplet moves away. Thus a droplet migrating through a polycrystalline solid may either penetrate or be trapped by a grain boundary, depending on whether or not the applied driving force on the droplet is sufficient to propel the droplet out of the energy valley associated with a grain boundary.
