Simulation of dissolution of silicon in an indium solution by spectral methods

Coskun, AU
Yener, Y
Arinc, F
The results of a numerical simulation of natural convection due to concentration gradients during dissolution of silicon in an indium solution in a horizontal substrate-solution-substrate system are presented. The Chebyshev-Tau spectral method has been used for the simulations. The results are in very good agreement with the experimental data available in the literature. It is concluded that the discrepancies in the dissolution depths between the previous simulations and experimental data, especially at the earlier stages of the process, are mostly due to combined effects of uncertainties in the predicted properties and insufficient numerical accuracy.


Modelling and Monte Carlo simulation of the atomic ordering processes in Ni3Al intermetallics
Mehrabov, Amdulla; Akdeniz, Mahmut Vedat (IOP Publishing, 2007-03-01)
The evolution of atomic ordering processes in Ni3Al has been modelled by a Monte Carlo ( MC) simulation method combined with the electronic theory of alloys in pseudopotential approximation. The magnitudes of atomic ordering energies of atomic pairs in the Ni3Al system have been calculated by means of electronic theory in pseudopotential approximation up to the 4th coordination spheres and subsequently used as input data for MC simulation for more detailed analysis for the first time. The Bragg - Williams l...
Analysis of the standard deviation of surface potential fluctuations in MOS interface from DLTS spectra
Ozder, S; Atilgan, I; Katircioglu, B (IOP Publishing, 1998-05-01)
The surface potential fluctuations can have significant effects on both the magnitude and shape of the measured small-pulse DLTS spectrum. An increase in the dispersion parameter sigma(S) of the surface potential distribution, which is assumed to have a Gaussian form, leads to a reduction in the DLTS signal size, a shift of the peak position and a broadening of the peak shape. A computer program including the exponential temperature dependence of hole capture cross section, sigma(P) = sigma(0) exp(-Delta E-...
Improvement of fracture resistance in a glass matrix optomechanical composite by minicomposite unit bridging
Dericioğlu, Arcan Fehmi (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-15)
Minicomposite unit bridging, which was experimentally determined to be the dominant toughening mechanism resulting in the R-curve behavior of the Al2O3-ZrO2 minicomposite-reinforced glass matrix optomechanical composite, was studied quantitatively using luminescence spectroscopy. Applied stress induced shift of the luminescence bands of the minicomposite reinforcement was calibrated. Using the experimentally obtained calibration curve, axial stresses could be mapped along the minicomposite embedded in the g...
Coupled thermoviscoplasticity of glassy polymers in the logarithmic strain space based on the free volume theory
Miehe, Christian; Mendez Diez, Joel; Göktepe, Serdar; Schaenzel, Lisa Marie (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-15)
The paper outlines a constitutive model for finite thermo-visco-plastic behavior of amorphous glassy polymers and considers details of its numerical implementation. In contrast to existing kinematical approaches to finite plasticity of glassy polymers, the formulation applies a plastic metric theory based on an additive split of Lagrangian Hencky-type strains into elastic and plastic parts. The analogy between the proposed formulation in the logarithmic strain space and the geometrically linear theory of pl...
Lateral heating effects on the PVT growth process of Hg2Cl2 crystals
Coskun, AU; Arinc, F; Yener, Y (IOP Publishing, 2003-03-01)
Effects of lateral heating on flow profiles and growth rates during the growth of mercurous chloride crystals by the physical-vapour-transport process in vertical ampoules are investigated by a two-dimensional model. The growth conditions of an experimental study available in the open literature are simulated. Lateral thermal boundary condition is modelled by a spatially sinusoidal heat flux. The results of the present computations are in agreement with the earlier experimental results and indicate that an ...
