abstract

  • Solute trapping is an important phenomenon in rapid solidification of alloys, for which the continuous growth model (CGM) is a popular sharp interface theory. Using matched asymptotic analysis, we show how to quantitatively map the sharp interface behavior of a binary alloy phase field model onto the CGM kinetics of Aziz et al. [1], with a controllable partition coefficient k(V ). We demonstrate the parameterizations that allow the phase field model to map onto the corresponding CGM or classical sharp interface models. We also demonstrate that the mapping is convergent for different interface widths. Finally we present the effect that solute trapping can have on cellular growth in a directional solidification simulation. The treatment presented for solute trapping can be easily implemented in different phase field models, and is expected to be an important feature in future studies of quantitative phase field modeling in rapid solidification regimes, such as those relevant to additive manufacturing.
