EPJ ST Special Issue: Modeling and simulation of heat/mass transport, nucleation and growth kinetics in phase transformations

The special issue is devoted to the problem of modeling of transport, nucleation, and growth processes in phase transformations occurring in condensed materials. The special attention is concerned with physical and mathematical models for computer simulation in the analysis of microstructure and properties of materials processed in novel techniques and technologies. First of all, the developing models will be devoted to the phase transformations in nano-structural materials, shape-memory materials, and materials obtained under external fields (e.g. magnetic field, hydrodynamics flows). Recent trends in the development of approaches to the study of these problems in material physics and materials sciences include multi-scale modeling, continual models for describing the properties of discrete systems, gradient-stable computational algorithms, high-performance software systems, and complex simulations using high-performance computing clusters.

This issue will be of interest to a wide range of specialists in material physics: theorists in the field of physical and mathematical models, developers of computational algorithms and software programs, scientists in the field of computational experiments, experimentalists from various fields of materials science. The issue can become a convenient forum for discussing trends and achievements, to find new solutions and to strengthen the research collaborations.

The topics include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Phase and structural transformations
  • Heat and mass transfer processes
  • Hydrodynamic flows
  • Nucleation and growth kinetics
  • Propagation of phase interfaces
  • Pattern formation
