Computer Simulations Combining Finite Difference and Finite Element Methods: Solute Drag on Migrating Grain Boundaries in Three-Dimension

Abstract:

Article Preview

The current study aims to improve our fundamental understanding of solute segregation and solute drag on migrating grain boundaries (GB) in three dimensions. Computer simulation combines finite difference and finite element methods. An exemplary case study is reported, in which a spherical grain is embedded inside a cubic grain and shrinks as a result of motion by curvature, as a preliminary to modeling grain growth in single phase materials. The results agree qualitatively with literature studies in 1-D.
