Phase Field Crystal Modeling of Microstructure Development
Time sequence showing the evolving density field (bottom) and
its amplitude (top) for a simulation of heterogeneous nucleation
and growth in an undercooled melt.
- Sponsor: DOE
- Coworkers: Nigel Goldenfeld, Zhi Huang
We use advanced computational methods to model the evolution of
solidification. This is a problem having
multiple length and time scales, and we use the
phase field crystal
method coupled with adaptive grid techniques to resolve them.
