Abstract

The volume-averaging continuum technique has been utilized to obtain numerical predictions for the transport phenomena occurring during the dissolution process of GaSb into InSb melt in a sandwich system. Dissolution and subsequent growth in this system are achieved by the application of a temperature gradient. The developed model was first verified for two test cases [(i) fluid/solid conjugate heat transfer and (ii) the solidification process of the binary system]. The code was then utilized to simulate the dissolution process of GaSb into InSb in the GaSb/InSb/GaSb sandwich system. The present results show that the developed volume-averaging model provides accurate predictions.
