Infiltration Update

Recently, significant advances have been made into the understanding and control of infiltration processes by developing models for liquid metal flow, heat transfer, wetting and spreading phenomena, and pressure effects. A short summary of such analytical and experimental treatments follows in the section "Mechanism of Infiltration." On the practical side, new ideas concerning infiltration techniques have been developed, the range of infiltration systems has extended, and, most notably, infiltration applications and final products have diversified to cover traditional and new areas. A literature survey on the latter topics is given in "Selected References" at the end of this article.
