A multiphase volume-averaged model describing macrosegregation in an alloy that solidifies by the formation and growth of a primary and a secondary solid phase has been formulated. The model is based on the work presented by Ni and Beckermann (Metall. Trans. 22B, 1991, p. 349), but is extended to account for secondary phase precipitation. A CFD model has been developed by implementation of the mathematical model in a commercial CFD code. Macrosegregation due to thermo-solutal convection in binary alloys with a stationary solid phase (primary and secondary solids) has been simulated. The predictions compare fairly well to experimental results and simulations previously reported in the literature.
