Beginning with Thermo-Calc 2016a the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) has been integrated into Thermo-Calc, eliminating the need for users to install two separate software programs.
This integration offers a significant upgrade to the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) as it gives it all the features that were already available within Thermo-Calc, such as overlaying plots and cloning systems.
Try the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) for Free
Users who do not have a Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) license can now try the precipitation calculator for free using one of the three free kinetic demo databases automatically included in the software.
Graphical mode examples 13 and 16 are available to all users, even those without a license.
Runs on Mac and Linux OS
Now that it is integrated into Thermo-Calc, the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) is supported on several Mac and Linux operating systems. See the System Requirements for a complete list.
Thermo-Calc Software have updated the naming system used for our software releases.
Beginning with the spring 2015 release, the software releases will be named after the year of the release rather than the number of releases. The year will then be followed by an “a” for the first release of the year or a “b” for the second release of the year. For example, this upcoming Thermo-Calc release will be known as Thermo-Calc 2015a rather than Thermo-Calc 5.0.
Thermo-Calc Software is on track to release Thermo-Calc 2015a late spring / early summer 2015. The release includes several improvements to plotting, including LaTeX integrations, a new database, an automatic updates feature as well as two new additions for advanced users. Continue reading →
A publication by Q. Chen et al., in the December issue of the Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance presents a model using TC-PRISMA that correctly predicts the chemical and thermal conditions for mono- and bimodal distributions of M7C3 precipitates in Fe-Cr-C alloy and γ’ precipitates in Ni-Al-Cr alloy, further demonstrating the program’s value for designing alloy chemistry and heat treatment.

Thermo-Calc Software is on track to release our biannual update this November, and the release promises to have some exciting new features. We have included some of the updates below. Full details will be released with the software update in mid-November. Continue reading →
We would like to draw your attention to a recent publication by O. Prat et al., in which TC-PRISMA has successfully been used for modeling precipitation kinetics in a novel 9%Cr heat resistant steel. This highly interesting paper can be accessed by following the link below:
