Phase Field Modelling: Stainless Steel Solidification

The movie below has been provided by Dr John Vitek of the Oak Ridge National Laboratories, USA. It is a phase field simulation of the dendritic solidification of an austenitic stainless steel. The sequence starts with the formation of δ-ferrite dendrites, followed by the nucleation and growth of austenite as the temperature decreases. The austenite finally overwhelms the ferrite and becomes the leading phase to solidify.
