control of thermal stress in dendritic web growthThe temperature distributions which are present during the growth of ribbon crystals generate stresses which can adversely affect the growth or perfection of the material. Several different effects occur which depend on the magnitude and distribution of these stresses. In most cases, the observed phenomena are the result of complex interactions of a number of mechanisms. In many instances, however, one mechanism predominates to such an extent that a simplified distinction between the various effects can be made. Definitions based on observed behavior in dendritic web growth are outlined.
