Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A model of nucleation in metasilicate melts, taking into account thermodynamic and kinetic factors of phase transformations, was developed on the basis of the notion of cybotaxic groups. The number of formed nuclei depends not only on the degree of supercooling of the melt but also on the temperature at which the melt is cast into a mold, in the course of which the kinetic factor is realized.
