Abstract Growth-twinned dendrites in semi-continuously cast aluminium billets were studied with the object of elucidating some of their crystallographic details. It is shown that there is no unique growth direction for twinned dendrites in aluminium and that under the conditions of D.C. semi-continuous casting, twinned dendrites can occur in competition with columnar dendrites when the twin plane deviates by as much as 30° from the normal to the solid-liquid interface. The growth advantage experienced by twins in competition with normal columnar dendrites is explained in terms of a growth mechanism which depends upon twin boundary energy, solute content, freezing rate and temperature gradient.
