Progress in Materials Data Availability and Application: A Review

December 28, 2021
Chandler A. Becker, James A. Warren
Materials researchers are generating data in ever-increasing volumes, and this data is, in turn, fueling the discovery and design of new materials. These changes are enabled by advances in data capture via laboratory information management systems (LIMS)

Polycrystalline Growth: Dirt Versus Dynamical Heterogeneity

October 12, 2021
L Granasy, T Pusztai, T Borzsonyi, James A. Warren, Jack F. Douglas
Most research into microstructure formation during solidification has focused on single crystal growth forms, ranging from faceted crystals to dendritic growth patterns. However, these growth forms can be peturbed by heterogeneities yielding a rich variety

Vector-Valued Phase Field Model for Crystallization and Grain Boundary Formation

October 12, 2021
R Kobayashi, James A. Warren, W Carter
We propose a new model for calculation of the crystallization and impingement of many particles with differing orientations. Based on earlier phase field models, a vector order parameter is introduced, and thus orientation of crystal/disordered interfaces
