The characteristics of ledge growth of precipitates are investigated by a previously developed finite-difference computer model. The plate lengthening simulation results which incorporate measured ledge heights and spacings are in reasonable agreement with the observed lengthening behavior of plates in Fe-C alloys. The simulation which takes into account the diffusion field interaction among multiple precipitates shows that a variety of precipitate morphologies actually observed can possibly be formed solely by the change in the extent of diffusion field overlap among ledges and/or neighboring precipitates. This overlap is in turn caused by changes in the solute supersaturation, distribution of ledge nucleation sites and ledge nucleation rates. A brief discussion is made of the relative growth kinetics of ledged and disordered interfaces.
