Abstract

Assimilating the solid-liquid interface to a binary domain described by a set of coupled equations, one studies the solidification process. The numerical solutions of the thermal breather, the thermal breather pair and the thermal cluster type are associated to a virtual crystallization germ, a stable crystallization germ and a crystalline grain, respectively. The fractal characteristics of the solidification process are analyzed by means of fractal dimension dynamics.
