Duplex stainless steel (DSS) has excellent corrosion resistance and mechanical properties due to its dual-phase structure. The solidification process is the key to determining the structure of materials, and an in-depth investigation of solidification can help us better understand the properties of materials. The melting and solidification processes of S32101 DSS were investigated using high temperature confocal microscopy (HTCM).
