ICAMS review article gains high interest in the scientific community
According to the Institute of Physics (IOP), the recently published ICAMS review article Phase-field models in materials science by Ingo Steinbach (Modelling and Simulation in Materials Science and Engineering, 2009, 17, 073001) has been downloaded 500 times so far. Noteworthy this was achieved in 39 days from the date of publication. To put this into context, across all IOP journals 3% of articles were accessed over 500 times this year.
In his article Steinbach describes the historical and theoretical background of the phase-field model for numerical simulations of crystallisation processes. Furthermore he presents applications related to the subject.
IOP is one of the world's most renowned scientific publisher. The review article can be downloaded free of charge until end of 2009 from the publisher's website.
