Abstract

This lab explores the kinetics of nucleation, crystallization, and growth processes using nanoHUB tools. In this lab, we use "Virtual Kinetics of Materials Laboratory: Polycrystalline Growth and Coarsening", and "Virtual Kinetics of Materials Laboratory: Dendritic Growth" to investigate the effects of Temperature (ΔT), Critical Radius (r*), Number of Nuclei (N*), and Thermal-Diffusivity (α) on dendritic growth and polycrystalline coarsening.
