Spallart and Allmaras [1] is a one-equation turbulence model developed for predicting complex aerodynamic flows. It will be of great interest to extend its application to predict other kind of flows in presence of heat and mass transfer. Specifically we will demonstrate, by considering [...]

Abstract

In this work, a novel phenomenological model is proposed to study the liquid-to-solid phase change of eutectic and hypoeutectic alloy compositions. The objective is [...]
