The interface morphologies of single crystal superalloy CMSX-2 were studied over a range of cooling rate with large variations in withdrawal speeds in directional solidification. A superfine cellular structure was obtained under both high thermal gradient up to 1000 K/cm and fast withdrawal rate up to 1 mm/s. The high rate directional solidification results in reduction in primary and secondary dendrite...
