This paper presents a level set framework for the modelling of doping effect during surfacediffusion phenomena in a granular packing. The molecular flux of the doped compound is related tothe chemical potentials of all the diffusion species. The evolution of the grain compact is simulatedin three dimensions, based on the resulting kinetic law relating the surface diffusion velocity to thethermodynamic driving force. An anisotropic adaptive mesh, based on the level set function propertiesis used to refine the mesh in the surroundings of the grain surface. The simulations have been perfomedby using parallel computing strategy.
