Thermo-Calc 2019a was released in December 2018 and brings many new databases, improved tools for integrating Thermo-Calc into an ICME workflow and the first ever material-specific property model library.
Highlights of the Thermo-Calc 2019a release:
Expanded TC-Python for ICME integration, including the ability to do diffusion calculations and to access all the functionality of the Property Model Calculator including the new Steel Model Library.
Steel Model Library, with pre-configured martensite and pearlite models and for use with the Property Model Calculator.
Databases: 6 new and 2 updated. These include both thermodynamic and mobility databases for nickel-based, aluminum-based and titanium and titanium aluminide-based alloys. The magnesium-based and high entropy alloy databases are updated.
Thermo-Calc Software has opened an office in Zürich, Switzerland, to better support our users in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. The office will be under the leadership of Nicholas Grundy, an experienced Technical Sales Manager with a PhD in Materials Science from ETH Zurich.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2017 Customer Satisfaction Survey. We have already implement some of the feedback into our software. Read on to learn about the changes we have already made. Continue reading →
Thermo-Calc Software AB are excited to celebrate our 20th anniversary as a company this year. Founded in 1997, we have grown to become a leading developer of software and databases for computational thermodynamics and kinetics, but our history goes back much further than just 20 years.
In honour of reaching the two decade mark, we’d like to share our interesting history with you. Learn how we transformed from a graduate project in the late 1970s in Stockholm, Sweden, to a leading developer of computational thermodynamics and kinetics and the people who are behind our success in our new 20th anniversary video:
As we look toward the future, users can expect our software to broaden toward predicting various mechanical properties, application modules (e.g. steel processing) and more. We will continue to release updates on a two-times-per-year cycle, work to expand our growing collection of thermodynamic and kinetic databases and develop new property databases to meet customer demand.
Thank you to all of our users who have made our first 20 years so successful.
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.
