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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Mekanik

    Author : Irina Loginova; KTH.; [2003]
    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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Hemantha Kumar Yeddu; KTH.; [2012]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; 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

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH, Materialvetenskap

    Author : Klara Asp Grönhagen; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Phase-field method; surface energy; solute drag; solid-state sintering; multicomponent multiphase flow; wetting; liquid-phase sintering; spinodal decomposition; CALPHAD; TECHNOLOGY Materials science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP 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

    University dissertation from Chalmers University of Technology

    Author : Claudio F. Nigro; Malmö University.; [2017]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; Technology; 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

  5. 5. The Prodromal Phase of What? A Metapsychiatric Analysis of the Prodromal Phase of Schizophrenia

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Anna-Karin Neubeck; Lennart Nordenfelt; Lisbet Palmgren; Lars Jacobsson; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Schizophrenia; trauma; prodromal phase; prodromal phenomenon; qualitative method; causality; Schizofreni; trauma; prodromalfas; prodromalfenomen; kvalitativ metod; kausalitet; MEDICINE Psychiatry; MEDICIN Psykiatri;

    Abstract : Prodromes of schizophrenia or prodromes of psychosis are a relatively new and expanding field of interest in psychiatric research. They are seen by some researchers as the initial symptom of having schizophrenia and have become a crucial topic in early psychosis research and intervention. READ MORE
