Melting front velocity dependencies on temperature are calculated using the molecular-dynamics method for the EAM models of Al and Fe as well as for the Lennard-Jones system. Different surface orientations are considered. It is shown that the Broughton-Gilmer-Jackson theory of the collision-limited growth can describe the results obtained. The isochoric bulk solid melting and decay under ultrafast heating is simulated for mono- and polycrystalline models. (C) 2007 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
