Abstract

A multi-phase field model was used to study the three-dimensional dynamics of morphology evolution in binary eutectics. Performing the calculations in three dimensions enables the study of the transition from rod-like to lamellar morphology and the study of lamellar fault motion not possible in two-dimensional simulations. The simulations show that rod structures are preferred over lamellar structures when the volume fraction is approximately equal to or less than 0.3. This is consistent with several simple models.
