No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


This comprehensive and self-contained, one-stop source discusses phase-field methodology in a fundamental way, explaining advanced numerical techniques for solving phase-field and related continuum-field models. It also presents numerical techniques used to simulate various phenomena in a detailed, step-by-step way, such that readers can carry out their own code developments.
Features many examples of how the methods explained can be used in materials science and engineering applications.
