Cylindrical samples of a near-eutectic AlCu30 alloy are annealed applying constant axial temperature gradients to directionally molten samples in an aerogel furnace. During annealing with various times and gradients also a rotating magnetic field (RMF) of 6 mT was applied leading to azimuthal and meridional flows of well known magnitude. The specific surface area of the primary phase was measured on metallographic in section perpendicular to the sample axis with a fixed amount of fraction solid. The specific surface area varies as the inverse cube root of annealing time if no RMF is applied, but varies as an inverse forth root at 6 mT. The experimental procedure and results are presented in detail and compared to isothermal coarsening measurements of Voorhees and co-workers.
