Abstract

The mathematical model for heat transfer during the Bridgeman crystal growth, using the finite element method and the obtained result аre presented. Some modifications to the method were introduced in order to incorporate the data obtained experimentally. Solving the model enabled comparison of the experimental and numerical data and to obtain sufficient accuracy. The model was used to calculate the temperature gradient in the sample and the calculated gradient was in accordance with the observed crystal growth regime.
