Thermodynamic and kinetic properties of crystal-melt (c-m) interface were computed for both BCC and FCC phases of Fe by molecular-dynamics simulation. Two Sutton-Chen potentials were adopted to describe the two solid phases of Fe. Firstly discussed is the anisotropy of melting point in different interfacial orientation which is calculated by two different methods (the coexisting phase method (CPM) and the interfacial velocity methods (IVM)). Free solidification simulations were used to determine the kinetic coefficient μ of the c-m interface. The anisotropy of μ with respect to growth direction is μ100>μ110, μ100>μ111 for the BCC phase and μ100>μ110≈μ111 for the FCC phase, and the kinetic coefficients of BCC are larger than the counterparts for he FCC. Through the interfacial roughness and area ratio S/S0 of BCC Fe under supercooling/superheating, the slight asymmetry between melting and solidifying can be observed too.
