A Multicomponent and Multiphase Model of Reactive Wetting
Walter Villanueva, William J. Boettinger, Geoffrey B. McFadden, James A. Warren
A diffuse-interface model of reactive wetting with intermetallic formation is presented. The model incorporates fluid flow, solute diffusion, and phase change that are based on the total molar Gibbs energy of a ternary system with four phases. Numerical simulations were performed successfully revealing the complex behavior of the reactive wetting process that include nucleation and growth of an intermetallic phase, and initial rapid spreading followed by a slow and progressive spreading. In addition, the nucleation and growth of the intermetallic phase is shown to be directly influenced by its kinetic coefficient or the interface energy associated with it.
