PRISMS-PF is an open-source framework for phase-field simulations of microstructure evolution developed with an emphasis on performance, flexibility, and ease-of-use. The framework’s competitive performance is enabled by its use of a matrix-free finite element method for explicit time integration, advanced adaptive meshing, and multi-level parallelization. We demonstrate the flexibility of PRISMS-PF and its adaptability to study a wide variety of phenomena, such as the interaction of precipitates in magnesium-rare earth alloys and the effects of microstructure in corrosion. We also present benchmark tests which show that the performance of PRISMS-PF either meets or exceeds that of other common open-source phase-field frameworks and largely exceeds that of finite difference codes. Finally, we discuss the integration of PRISMS-PF with other computational packages such as DREAM.3D, VisIt, and the Materials Commons information repository and collaboration platform from the PRISMS Center at the University of Michigan.
