Modelling and Visualizing the Cahn-Hilliard-Cook Equation

  title={Modelling and Visualizing the Cahn-Hilliard-Cook Equation},
  author={Kenneth A. Hawick and Daniel Peter Playne},
The Cahn-Hilliard-Cook equation continues to be a useful model describing binary phase separation in systems such as alloys and other physical and chemical applications. We describe our investigation of this field equation and report on the various discretisation schemes we used to integrate the system in one-, twoand three-dimensions. We also discuss how the equation can be visualised effectively in these different dimensions and consider how these techniques can usefully be applied to other… CONTINUE READING
