Gilbert Stuart Room
The classical Stefan problem is an idealized mathematical model of the solidification of a pure material. In practical applications, the solidified phase is often a multi-component material that solidifies under extreme conditions lying outside the realm of conventional thermodynamic equilibrium descriptions. Examples include the effects of convection in the liquid phase, the effects of nonequilibrium interfacial attachment kinetics, and the importance of metastable bulk phases during processing.
To describe these situations, a variety of numerical and analytical techniques have been developed and applied to increasingly complex models of materials processing. In this session, the speakers will describe recent work that is motivated by both fundamental and applied aspects of solidification theory.
