This article describes the three solidification mechanisms of peritectic structures, namely, peritectic reaction, peritectic transformation, and direct precipitation. It discusses the theoretical analysis, which shows that the rate of the peritectic transformation is influenced by the diffusion rate and the extension of the beta-phase region in the phase diagram. The article provides information on peritectic transformations in multicomponent systems.
