Fundamentals of the Modeling of Microstructure and Texture Evolution
This article presents various equations that are essential for the modeling of both single-phase and multiphase profiles. It includes the fundamental laws of diffusion, along with its equations and solutions. The article provides information on the series of applications that illustrate how various diffusional processes can be modeled.
Diffusion is the process by which molecules, atoms, ions, point defects, or other particle types migrate from a region of higher concentration to one of lower concentration. This article focuses on the diffusivity data and modeling of lattice diffusion in solid-state materials, presenting their diffusion equations. It discusses different methods for evaluating the diffusivity of a material, including the measurement of diffusion coefficients, composition profiles, and layer growth widths. The article reviews the various types of direct and indirect diffusion experiments to extract tracer, intrinsic, and chemical diffusivities. It provides information on the applications of single-phase and multiphase diffusion.
