Dynamics of the Freezing Front During the Solidification of a Colloidal Alumina Aqueous Suspension: In Situ X-Ray Radiography, Tomography, and Modeling

Abstract

Ice templating of colloidal suspension is gaining interest in material science because it offers the possibility to shape advanced materials, and in particular porous ceramics. Recent investigations on this peculiar process show that a correlation between the morphology of the frozen suspension and the velocity of the freezing front do exist. The dynamics of the freezing front of a colloidal suspension of alumina is investigated in the present study by experimental tests, finite element numerical analysis and theoretical analytical calculations. The experimental tests are carried out by in situ X-ray radiography (investigation of the dynamics of the freezing front) and tomography (investigation of the resulting morphology of the frozen suspension). The finite element model is a continuous properties model; it is used for investigating the dynamics and the shape of the freezing front. The analytical model is based on the two-phase Stefan problem. We propose a solution for the dynamics of the solidification front based on the calculation of the diffusivity as a function of the particle fraction and local temperature.
