Abstract:

A COMPUTER SOFTWARE PROGRAM WILL BE DEVELOPED THAT WILL ENABLE THE NUMERICAL SIMULATION OF CRYSTAL GROWTH FROM A MELT, INCLUDING HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER, TRANSPORT OF SOLUTE,TRACKING OF THE SOLIDIFICATION FRONT, AND MENISCUS EFFECTS. THE PROGRAM WILL BE BASED ON THE FINITE ELEMENT METHOD, AND WILL ALLOW BOTH STEADY-STATE AND TRANSIENT SIMULATIONS. THE WORK WILL COMPRISE DEVELOPMENT, TESTING AND IMPLEMENTATION OF NEW CAPABILITIES RELATED TO THE EXISTING COMMERCIAL FINITE ELEMENT PROGRAM FIDAP.
