Sea ice formation in 3-D
Uniform mesh simulation of sea ice (blue) growing from a cold atmosphere into the underlying ocean (yellow). 3-D simulations provide further insights into the pattern formation in the horizontal plane.
Binary alloy solidification with AMR
Solidification of a binary alloy from above with flow in the liquid phase described by a Darcy-Brinkman equation. Extra resolution is added automatically around the narrow channels with high solute concentration which form spontatenously in the mushy layer
Darcy flow in a Hele-Shaw cell
Flow in a narrow Hele-Shaw cell, as often used in experiments,
is quasi-2-dimensional and well described by just Darcy's law which is less
computationally expensive than the full Darcy-Brinkman equation.
