Oscillatory-nonoscillatory transitions for inclined cellular patterns in three-dimensional directional solidification

Abstract : The oscillatory behavior of cellular patterns produced by directional solidification of a transparent alloy under microgravity conditions was recently observed to depend on the misorientation of the main crystal axis with respect to the direction of the imposed thermal gradient [Pereda et al., Phys. Rev. E 95, 012803 (2017)]. To characterize the oscillatory-nonoscillatory transition resulting from the variations of the crystal misorientation, new experiments performed in DECLIC-DSI onboard the International Space Station and phase-field simulations are analyzed and combined in the present study. Experimental results are extracted from movies showing regions that extend on both sides of a boundary between two grains with respective misorientations of roughly 3 and 7 degrees. A set of tools are developed to analyze the experimental data and the same analysis is reproduced for the numerical data. A number of points are addressed in the simulations, like the effects of the system dimensions. The oscillatory state is found to be favored by the increase of the geometrical degrees of freedom. In bulk samples, a good agreement is found between the experimental and the numerical oscillatory-nonoscillatory threshold given by the ratio of the drift time to the oscillation period at the transition. The existence and the origin of bursts of localized groups of oscillating cells within a globally nonoscillatory pattern are characterized. A qualitative description of the physical mechanism that governs the oscillatory-nonoscillatory transition is provided.
