This dataset contains MATLAB code which can be used to reproduce results by Minar and Moelans submitted to Physical Review Materials in January 2022. Preprint is at The code has two main purposes: 1) to create user-specified input and run a phase field simulation with some standard output and 2) to determine phase field model parameters from minimal physical input. Multi-phase field model of grain growth with anisotropic grain boundary properties was implemented, including inclination dependence of both interface energy and mobility. The input and solver are designed to handle arbitrary number of phases and of grains (it was not memory-optimized for many grains though). Follow examples of usage in 'launch.m' and help comments in individual files.
