We present a new phase field crystal model for structural transformations in multi-component alloys. The formalism builds upon the two-point correlation kernel developed in Greenwood et al. for describing structural transformations in pure materials [Phys. Rev. Lett. 105, 045702 (2010)]. We introduce an effective twopoint correlation function for multi-component alloys that uses the local species concentrations to interpolate between different crystal structures. A simplified version of the…

Phase field crystal modeling of ternary solidification microstructures

Combining phase-field crystal methods with a Cahn-Hilliard model for binary alloys.

This paper proposes a 2D theoretical framework that couples a Cahn-Hilliard (CH) model, which describes the composition field of a diffusing species, with a phase-field crystal (PFC) model that describes the host-material lattice symmetry, and introduces the transformation coefficients in the PFC method to describe affine lattice deformations.

A Review of Quantitative Phase-Field Crystal Modeling of Solid–Liquid Structures

Phase-field crystal (PFC) is a model with atomistic-scale details acting on diffusive time scales. PFC uses the density field as its order parameter, which takes a constant value in the liquid phase
