  1. 1. Phase-field modeling of diffusion controlled phase transformations

    Author : Irina Loginova; KTH; []
    Keywords : phase-field; dendritic growth; grain boundary; Widmanstaetten plate; solidification;

    Abstract : Diffusion controlled phase transformations are studied bymeans of the phase-field method. Morphological evolution ofdendrites, grains and Widmanst\"atten plates is modeled andsimulated.Growth of dendrites into highly supersaturated liquids ismodeled for binary alloy solidification.

  2. 2. Martensitic Transformations in Steels : A 3D Phase-field Study

    Author : Hemantha Kumar Yeddu; John Ågren; Annika Borgenstam; Yunzhi Wang; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Phase-field method; Martensitic transformations; Plastic de formation; Multi-length scale modeling; Microstructure; Stress states; Steels;

    Abstract : Martensite is considered to be the backbone of the high strength of many commercial steels. Martensite is formed by a rapid diffusionless phase transformation, which has been the subject of extensive research studies for more than a century. READ MORE

  3. 3. Phase-field modeling of surface-energy driven processes

    Author : Klara Asp Grönhagen; John Ågren; Suzana Fries; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Phase-field method; surface energy; solute drag; solid-state sintering; multicomponent multiphase flow; wetting; liquid-phase sintering; spinodal decomposition; CALPHAD; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Surface energy plays a major role in many phenomena that are important in technological and industrial processes, for example in wetting, grain growth and sintering. In this thesis, such surface-energy driven processes are studied by means of the phase-field method. READ MORE

  4. 4. Phase field modeling of flaw-induced hydride precipitation kinetics in metals

    Author : Claudio F. Nigro; Christer Persson; Malmö högskola; []
    Keywords : hydride; phase field theory; linear elastic fracture mechanics; finite element method; phase transformation; hydrogen embrittlement; finite volume method;

    Abstract : Hydrogen embrittlement can manifest itself as hydride formation in structures when in contact with hydrogen-rich environments, e.g. in space and nuclear power applications. To supplant experimentation, modeling of such phenomena is beneficial to make life prediction reduce cost and increase the understanding. READ MORE
