freez·ing

(frē'zing),
1. The temperature below which a liquid becomes solid.
2. Congealing, stiffening, or hardening by exposure to cold.

freezing

a sudden inability to initiate or continue repetitive motor activity of patients with Parkinson's disease. The patient may be unable to take the first step in walking or, if walking, may find a real or imagined obstacle that causes the feet to remain in one spot.

(frēz'ing)
Congealing, stiffening, or hardening by exposure to cold.

freezing

reducing the temperature of materials to the freezing point of water so that they are frozen solid. Used in the preservation of food, the preparation of material for histopathological examination and in cryosurgery.

freezing point
the temperature at which a liquid begins to freeze; for water, the freezing point is 32°F (0°C).
quick freezing
greatly improves the quality of meat because of reduced ice crystal formation.
skin freezing

For greater deviations, solidification was initially cellular, transitioning to mildly dendritic toward the center of the ingots, with a shallower depth of transition for increasing deviation from the congruent composition.
To validate this numerical model, we use an analytical solution known in cases of filling a square cavity, and a solidification of a semi infinite medium.
In this model, the liquid metal was poured into the solidification mould in portions, and the ingot was periodically withdrawn.
Research whit real solidification moduls help was made for influence of the number of casting fed by the same feeder.
This means that the solidification of that solder mix is not at a common temperature of 217[degrees]C, but that parts of this mix may solidify at 232[degrees], 227[degrees] or 221[degrees]C.
The time step, controlled by various stability criteria associated with fluid flow, also may be short compared to the total solidification time of the casting.

General relationships of solidification of metallic melts
Russian physical metallurgist Eskin (Netherlands Institute for Metals Research, Delft) analyzes the formation of structure, properties, and defects in the as-cast material and correlates them with the physical phenomena that are involved in the solidification and with the process parameters of direct chill casting.
Establishing the shape and position of solidification front, at a continuous cast slab (DC or EMC) is a dynamic process that goes after some time on a stationary state
Among the reasons for the dull appearance is the fact that the alloy contains three different eutectic elements, each with its own melting point and solidification behavior.
