Abstract

A phase-field model that includes stress field during non-isothermal solidification of a one-component system has been developed. The model has been applied to solidification and melting of confined spherical volumes. It has been shown that at some boundary and initial conditions the evolution of a spherical symmetry system results in steady states corresponding time-independent distribution of order-parameter and uniform temperature. The interval of two-phase stability decreases with the sphere radius. The presented model can be applied to simulation of the process of writing during phase change recording.
