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. ASPECTS OF THE CRYSTAL GROWTH PROCESS UNDER CONDITIONS OF MICROGRAVITY WILL BE SPECIALLY EMPHASIZED.
