TopoSim3D/Grain3D: Modeling Surface Deposition and Growth


Keywords: , , ,

We discuss the coupling we are develping between TopoSim3D and Grain3D – two tols making use of the Los Alamos LaGriT adaptive grid toolset. TopoSim3D is a three-dimensional profile simulation tool being developed at Los Alamos to model surface motion during deposition and etc, with the surface reaction mechanisms described using ChemKin and Surface ChemKin software libraries, developed at Sandia National Laboratory. Grain3D is a three-dimensional Gradient Weighted Moving Finite Element code being developed at Los Alamos to model microstructural evolution and annealing. Coupling these two tools provides a capability for studying three-dimensional effects during processing at a feature-scale level.
