N2 - The aim of this work is to calculate the optimum history of boundary cooling conditions that results in a desired solidification morphology and grain size. In the present work, the history of freezing front location/motion is the main control/target variable that is used to define the obtained solidification microstructures. The adjoint method is used in conjunction with the conjugate gradient method for the solution of the multidimensional inverse Stefan design problem. The gradient of the cost functional is first obtained by solving the adjoint equations backward in time and, then, the sensitivity equations are solved forward in time to compute the optimal step size for the gradient method.
