Model description of grain boundary diffusion processes in microcrystalline solid systems

  • 1 National University of Science and Technology «MISIS»


The simple model of grain and phase boundaries diffusion into polycrystalline solid system with micro grain dimensions is proposed. There are considered different types of diffusion regimes which are realized by definite correlations between volume and grain boundary diffusion lengths and average grain sizes.
