This year’s TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition was attended by more than 4,000 engineers, scientists, academics and other professionals who shared the latest advances in the fields of minerals, metals and materials. Staff from our main office in Sweden, Switzerland and the USA were in attendance, giving seven presentations on the latest developments to our software and databases.
We are releasing all of our TMS 2020 presentations in PDF format, so you can read about some of the exciting new developments that we have been working on. Read about the new Pearlite model being implemented into the Property Model Calculator, advances in additive manufacturing applications, an upgrade to the Process Metallurgy Module that will allow users to model the entire steelmaking process and more.Continue reading
A paper was recently published as part of the TMS Proceedings 11th International Symposium on High Temperature Metallurgical Processing which describes in detail how Thermo-Calc can be applied to steel making processes for new and existing steel grades using the new Process Metallurgy Module, which was introduced last year in Thermo-Calc 2019b. The paper, titled The application of an effective equilibrium reaction zone model based on CALPHAD thermodynamics to steel making, describes how an expansion to the module, coming this year, incorporates a kinetic model of the steelmaking process based on the concept of effective equilibrium reaction zones (EERZ) and gives a detailed example of how this module can be applied to the entire steelmaking process using a real case from a steel plant in Ontario, Canda.Continue reading
Thermo-Calc 2019b was released in June 2019 and introduces a new module for steel and slag processing, the Process Metallurgy Module, three new databases, a completely rewritten part of the calculation engine and more.Continue reading
