Abstract

This article is concerned with the existence of traveling wave solutions, including standing waves, to some models based on configurational forces, describing respectively the diffusionless phase transitions of solid materials, e.g., Steel, and phase transitions due to interface motion by interface diffusion, e.g., Sintering. These models were proposed by Alber and Zhu in [3]. We consider both the order-parameter-conserved case and the non-conserved one, under suitable assumptions. Also we compare our results with the corresponding ones for the Allen-Cahn and the Cahn-Hilliard equations coupled with linear elasticity, which are models for diffusion-dominated phase transitions in elastic solids.
