Abstract or Description

Abstract: "Using balance laws for microforce and energy in conjunction with constitutive equations consistent with the second law, a general phase-field theory of solidification is developed in which gradients of the order parameter enter the constitutive equations for the internal energy and the entropy. The final results consist of anisotropic and isotropic phase-field equations at various levels of generality."
