What is Thermo-Calc

From Thermo-Calc

Thermo-Calc is a powerful software package used to perform thermodynamic and phase diagram calculations for multi-component systems of practical importance. Calculations are based on thermodynamic databases produced by expert evaluation of experimental data using the CALPHAD method. Databases are available for Steels, Ti-, Al-, Mg-, Ni-alloys, multi-component oxides and many other materials.

The Diffusion module (DICTRA) is a unique software tool used for detailed simulations of diffusion controlled phase transformations for multi-component alloys. Example applications include heat treatment, microsegregation during solidification, growth and dissolution of precipitates, coarsening and more.

The Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) is a computational tool for simulating multi-particle precipitation kinetics of diffusion-controlled processes in multicomponent and multi-phase alloy systems.
