Abstract: Prediction of microstructure evolution and microsegregation is one of the most important problems in materials science. The dendritic growth and microsegregation provide a challenging simulation goal for computational models of solidification, in addition to being an important technological feature of many casting processes. The phase-field model offers the prospect of being able to perform realistic simulation experiments on dendrite growth in metallic systems. In this paper, the microsegregation and dendritic growth of hypoeutectic Al-Cu alloys under constant cooling rate was simulated using a phase-field model. The main new feature of the present model is based on the fact that the effect of the growth rate is incorporated via an effective partition coefficient that has been experimentally determined for a range of growth rates. It is shown that both models (Phase-field model and Scheil) have significant deviations from the experimental data when the equilibrium partition coefficient is considered in the calculations. Since the predicted results using the models yielded discrepancies from the experimental data, an experimental equation is adopted for calculating the effective partition coefficient from experimental data. The experimental equation is then adopted in the calculations of phase-field model and Scheil's equation, showing a good agreement with the experimental data.
