Numerical simulation of the solidification of a binary ideal alloy based on the phase-field model
The paper presents the model of the solidification process of a binary ideal alloy based on the time-dependent Landau-Ginzburg equation and the equations conservation of mass and energy (the phase-field model). The thermodynamical consistence of the model and its applicability to describe the solidification process are discussed. The comparison of exact solutions of Stefan problem of the planar-front solidification process with numerical solutions of the phase-field model obtained using the adaptive grid technique is performed. Numerical results of the steady-state solidification process of the undercooled melt are analyzed.
