Recent developments in phase-field models of solidification

Wheeler, A.A., Ahmad, N.A., Boettinger, W.J., Braun, R.J., McFadden, G.B. and Murray, B.T. (1995) Recent developments in phase-field models of solidification Advances in Space Research, 16, (7), pp. 163-172. (doi:10.1016/0273-1177(95)00153-6).

Record type: Article


In this paper we review the current state-of-the-art in the modeling of solidification by phase-field models. We briefly review the phase-field formulation of the solidification of a pure material and discuss how important physical effects, such as surface energy anisotropy, may be included. We go on to discuss numerical solutions of the phase-field equations, with particular reference to the computation of dendrites. Finally, we describe recent successful attempts to extend the phase-field methodology to alloys.
