Note that the included software, i.e. Thermo-Calc 4A, is a Limited Academic Version of Thermo-Calc that can be used for 1 year. It’s limited in the sense that Thermo-Calc can only handle 3 components or fewer, whereas the Diffusion module (DICTRA) and the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) can only handle 2 components. In comparison, the full version of Thermo-Calc can handle systems with up to 40 components.
Please make sure to also note that the limited DEMO version comes with several thermodynamic and mobility databases which are relatively small and intended for evaluation purposes only. The full version of the software can naturally be ordered with more complete databases, as described in the database section.
Thermodynamic demo databases:
Mobility demo databases:
Note that the PURE5 database is only intended for extracting data for the pure elements when performing assessment work, or for tabulating or plotting thermodynamic properties of the pure elements.
Thermo-Calc 4A is only intended for educational purposes in an academic environment and for no other purposes.
Thermo-Calc 4A is just like the full version available both for Windows, Linux and Mac OS computers, so make sure that your computer fulfils the system requirements.
