New Tutorial on the Role of Diffusion in Materials

Thermo-Calc Software recently published a new comprehensive tutorial which teaches about the role of diffusion in materials and how the Diffusion module (DICTRA) can be applied to materials design and processing, called The Role of Diffusion in Materials.

An exercise that walks users through how to assess whether there is any leakage from a tube at a power plant.

A basic exercise at the beginning of the tutorial walks users through how to assess whether there is any leakage from a tube at a power plant. The exercises get increasingly complex as the tutorial progresses.

The Diffusion module (DICTRA) Now Available in the Graphical Mode

The Diffusion module (DICTRA), the software program for accurate simulation of diffusion controlled reactions in multicomponent alloy systems, is now available in the graphical mode beginning with Thermo-Calc 2017a, making it easier than ever for users to begin making diffusion simulations.  Continue reading

DICTRA used to model changes to Ni-based superalloy during Interdiffusion

In a  paper published in the January 2016 issue of Journal of Phase Equilibria and Diffusion , Vol. 37 No. 2 2016, the homogenization model within DICTRA together with the TCNI and MOBNI databases were used to model the interdiffusion processes in the Ni-based superalloy CMSX-10 and was shown to have good agreement with experimental values.
