The principle of minimum entropy production is applied to the analysis of the formation of a solid structure in the course of the eutectic solidification. It is assumed that the liquid and solid phases are divided by the plane boundary and the solidification rate is constant. At these conditions solidification results in the development of the lamellar structure in the solid and the process is defined by the lamellar spacing and the rate of the motion of the liquid-solid interface. The variational equation describing system evolution is modified to describe the process in question. A solution of this equation determines the relationship between the solidification rate and the lamellar spacing. The obtained results complies with experimental data.
