Mathematical theory and simulation tools for phase transformations in materials (»Add to Infobox)

Research Leader: Professor John Ågren

The purpose of this multidisciplinary project is to bring microstructural modelling to a new level by developing the necessary mathematical models and computational techniques, such as reliable and efficient solvers and adaptive methods for deterministic and stochastic PDEs. Close collaboration between materials scientists, mathematicians and numerical analysts will result in the next generation of models and computational tools that will be able to treat complex microstructures including three-dimensional shapes with important features on several length scales. The project involves the departments of Mechanics (Gustav Amberg); MSE, Materials Science and Engineering (John Ågren); NADA, Numerical Analysis and Computer Science (Anders Szepessy, Gunilla Kreiss), and Mathematics (Anders Szepessy), at KTH. At present the work at materials science is directed towards interfacial energy-driven processes like sintering and grain-boundary etching.

The project is funded primarily by the Swedish Foundation for Strategic Research (SSF) as a *Ramanslag i tillämpad matematik* project in applied mathematics on \\\"Mathematical theory and simulation tools for phase transformations is materials\\\". The project is administered by the Department of Mechanics.
