Elementary theory of mass-transfer in two-phase alloy under electromigration with account of two competing mechanisms of the fluxes equilibration is presented. These two competing mechanisms are Kirkendall effect and backstress. Various versions of Monte Carlo models for simultaneous simulation of structure evolution kinetics and of mass-transfer kinetics under high-density current are presented. Possibility of self-organization with minimization of Joule heating is demonstrated.
