Abstract

This article discusses two methods for modeling eutectic solidification using the phase-field approach. First, the multi-phase field model is used to study the three-dimensional morphological evolution of binary eutectics. Performing the calculations in three dimensions allows observation of both lamellar and rod-like structures as well as rod branching as solidification progresses. The second approach models multiple eutectic grains where the crystallizing phases have an orientation relationship. This approach is a promising candidate for modeling complex solidification microstructures.
