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
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.
Thermo-Calc 2018b is released in June 2018 and includes the addition of three key features to the TC-Python API and two new thermodynamic databases for metal oxide solutions (TCOX8) and Mg-based alloys (TCMG5).
Highlights of the Thermo-Calc 2018b release:
Thermo-Calc 2018a was released in March 2018 and includes an entirely new API, new databases for aluminium and high entropy alloys, major updates to the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) and more.

We are excited to announce the release of Thermo-Calc 2017b, which includes several new databases, major upgrades to the Diffusion and Precipitation modules and more:
Thermo-Calc 2017b includes many exciting new features and updates: Continue reading
Thermo-Calc 2017b, which was released in October 2017, includes six new graphical mode examples to help users learn about the new features in the software – three new examples for the Diffusion module (DICTRA) and three for the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA).
Beginning with Thermo-Calc 2017b, users without a license for the Diffusion module (DICTRA) or the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) can now run calculations in these modules with up to three elements, instead of two, meaning that all users can now run all of the included examples files. Users who do not upgrade to Thermo-Calc 2017b can test out the Diffusion and Precipitation modules by downloading the free Thermo-Calc demo.
The examples have also been renamed to clarify which module they are for. Examples for Thermo-Calc in general have a “T” in front of the number, examples for the Diffusion module have a “D” and examples for the Precipitation module have a “P”.
New Diffusion module (DICTRA) examples:
- D_05_Diffusion_Fe_Ni_Cr_ Moving_Boundary_Diffusion_Couple
- D_07_Diffusion_Carburization_ Multiphase. Watch the D_07 tutorial video showing users how to set up the calculation.
New Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) examples:
- P_07_Precipitation_Ni-Al-Cr_CCT_Gamma-Gamma_prime. Watch the P_07 tutorial video to learn more about this calculation.
- P_09_Precipitation_Al-Sc_AL3SC_Sphere_Cuboid. Watch the P_09 video tutorial showing users how to set up the calculation.
All examples can be accessed from within Thermo-Calc in the Help Menu > Open Examples. The examples are divided into folders for Thermo-Calc, the Diffusion module (DICTRA) and the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA).
Thermo-Calc 2017b is scheduled for release late fall 2017. The release includes many exciting upgrades and new features, such as: Continue reading
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.

Thermo-Calc 2016a offers significant speed improvements when compared to previous versions of the software.
The speed improvements were achieved by optimizing global minimization and optimizing two of the largest databases.
