Introduction to Thermo-Calc

Friday, January 21, 2022 at 9:30am to 12:30pm

Virtual Event

Offered by Prof. Greg Olson and Clay Houser. This activity is an introduction to the Thermo-Calc software and how it may be used to perform thermodynamic calculations and simulations. Throughout this week, students will be introduced to the CALculation of PHase Diagrams (CALPHAD) methodology and the Thermo-Calc software. We will provide guided examples of thermodynamic, diffusion, and precipitation simulations (Thermo-Calc, DICTRA, and TC-PRISMA). We will also demonstrate use of computational tools for materials design with real-world examples, including an introduction to the TC-Python API. Finally, students will develop understanding of the links between processing, structure, properties, and performance (system design framework). The class will involve instruction and discussion on the theory and function of these tools with guided examples and case studies. Signup here.
