The interaction of solidification fronts with embedded heterogeneities, such as particles and living cells, is an important physical ingredient underlying the successful solidification processing of some materials. An example in the first category is the processing of metal-matrix composites (MMCs) where solidifying metal dendrites interact with ceramic reinforcements [1–3]. Processing of biological material, such as cells and tissue for cryopreservation [4], falls into the second category. In each case, the evolving solidification microstructure interacts in complex ways with the embedded particle.
