CHAPTER 5

Numerical Modeling of Precipitation

With appropriate theory for nucleation of precipitates at hand (which was elaborated in Chapter 2), and with a choice of different growth models for various types of applications (as discussed in Chapter 3), it is an obvious task, next, to combine and link a set of suitable models for the individual physical mechanisms to obtain a comprehensive simulation tool for the entire precipitation process. The purpose of this chapter is to provide an introduction and a discussion of features of the presently most popular approaches.

The numerical methods outlined below comprise of three approaches of fundamentally different methodology. In the first section, the well-known and widely appreciated Kolmogorov–Johnson–Mehl–Avrami ...
