SymPhas—General Purpose Software for Phase‐Field, Phase‐Field Crystal, and Reaction‐Diffusion Simulations

  title={SymPhas—General Purpose Software for Phase‐Field, Phase‐Field Crystal, and Reaction‐Diffusion Simulations},
  author={Steven A. Silber and Mikko Karttunen},
  journal={Advanced Theory and Simulations},
This work develops a new open source application programming interface (API) and software package called SymPhas for simulations of phase‐field, phase‐field crystal, and reaction‐diffusion models, supporting up to three dimensions and an arbitrary number of fields. SymPhas delivers two novel program capabilities: 1) User specification of models from the associated dynamical equations in an unconstrained form and 2) extensive support for integrating user‐developed discrete‐grid‐based numerical…

Machine-learning-based data-driven discovery of nonlinear phase-field dynamics.

This paper presents data-driven architectures based on a multilayer perceptron, a convolutional neural network, and a combination of a CNN and long short-term memory structures for discovering the nonlinear equations of motion for phase-field models with nonconserved and conserved order parameters.

PRISMS-PF: A general framework for phase-field modeling with a matrix-free finite element method

For a two-dimensional solidification benchmark problem, the performance of PRISMS-PF meets or exceeds that of phase-field frameworks that focus on implicit/semi-implicit time stepping, even though the benchmark problem’s small computational size reduces the scalability advantage of explicit time-integration schemes.

Thermodensity coupling in phase-field-crystal-type models for the study of rapid crystallization

We self-consistently derive a formalism that couples a Phase Field Crystal (PFC) density field to thermal transport. It yields a theory for non-uniform transient temperature and density evolution,

Phase-Field Models for Microstructure Evolution

■ Abstract The phase-field method has recently emerged as a powerful computational approach to modeling and predicting mesoscale morphological and microstructure evolution in materials. It describes
