A level set based finite element algorithm for the simulation of dendritic growth

Abstract

Dendritic growth is a nonlinear process, which falls into the category of self-organizing pattern formation phenomena. It is of great practical importance, since it appears frequently and, in the case of alloys, affects the engineering properties of the resulting solid. We describe a new finite element algorithm for the two–dimensional Stefan problem, where… (More)
