We propose a scheme for simulation of the solute-driven dendritic solidification which accounts for the flows of liquid and motion of growing dendrites. The scheme is based on the multiphase-field method for calculating the solidification and the lattice Boltzmann method to simulate the fluid flows. Motion and rotation of solid grains is possible.
