Freezing by Radiation and Convection
16 May 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell
Use radiation and a heat transfer coefficient to estimate the initial rate of solidification of the solid shell at the top of a casting while the temperature in the shell can be considered uniform, then set up the equation for mixed conduction/convection-radiation limited cooling.
Heat Conduction and Diffusion in Alloy Casting
Derive temperature and liquid concentration profiles during die casting of a roughly plate-shaped alloy part.
Electron Beam Centrifugal Atomization of Metal
Use a heat balance to calculate electron beam power required to continuously heat and melt metal as it is atomized, including heat losses from the top surface due to evaporation and radiation.
Radiative Cooling of an Aluminum Cube
09 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Adam Powell
Show that radiative cooling of an aluminum cube is Newtonian (uniform temperature), and calculate time required to cool through a certain temperature range by radiation alone.
Application of Integral Analysis to Semi-infinite Diffusion Couple
20 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Matthew John M. Krane
Apply integral analysis to semi-infinite diffusion couple.
Argon Quenching of Ni-based Alloy Cylindrical Bars

Solidification Simulation of Pure Metal in Semi-Infinite Mold
12 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Michael S Titus, Justin Cooper, Dongsheng Wen
Simulate the solidification of various pure metals in various mold materials. Adjust mold and metal properties.
Melting via molecular dynamics simulations
10 Mar 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Alejandro Strachan
In this assignment you will use MD simulations to study melting in metals using the nanoMATERIALS simulation tool in nanoHUB. You will build a supercell and heat it up to study its melting. You can visualize the atomic configuration as the temperature is increased and after melting. From the...
NEMO5 Tutorial 4B: Device Modeling - Metals
18 Jul 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Ganesh Krishna Hegde
Describes some of the modifications made to NEMO5 to include Nth nearest neighbor interactions so that metal electronic structure and transport can be studied. Also includes instructions on how to use NEMO5 input decks to obtain bulk metallic band structures.
