Abstract

The development of a confocal optical processing system and its application to a solidifying metal model are reported. This system has been used to acquire image format data from which quantitative temperature and concentration profiles have been measured. Strong agreement is shown to exist between experimental results obtained in this manner and numerical simulations.
