Professors Mats Hillert and Malin Selleby


Thermo-Calc and related products are used within academia for educational purposes, both at an undergraduate and graduate level.

Thanks to a cooperation with Professors Mats Hillert and Malin Selleby from the department of Materials Science and Engineering at KTH, Stockholm, Sweden, we are able to provide an educational package for teaching of thermodynamics at an undergraduate level completely free of charge.

Our educational package for teachers can be downloaded on the right and contains the following material:

  • Textbook: Computerized Thermodynamics for Materials Scientists and Engineers; Mats Hillert and Malin Selleby, Stockholm (2013)
  • Lectures: Lecture materials for teaching of the content in the provided text book. Prepared by Prof. Malin Selleby
  • Tutorials: A set of examples to help with understanding
  • Solution proposals: Suggested solutions to the exercises present in the text book
  • Solution proposals: Suggested solutions to the provided tutorial examples
  • Software: Thermo-Calc 4A, a Limited Academic Version of Thermo-Calc that can be used for 1 year. It’s limited in the sense that only up to 3 components can be selected. The Diffusion module (DICTRA) and the Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) are also included and 2 components can be selected for these. In comparison, the full version can handle systems with up to 40 components.
  • Databases: Thermo-Calc 4A comes with a selection of several small thermodynamic and mobility databases that should be sufficient for solving the included examples.

The software and databases provided as part of this package can also naturally be used for teaching several other topics, such as, for example, phase diagrams and materials design. However, note that the software version provided, i.e. Thermo-Calc 4A, is restricted to handle 3 or fewer components at the same time.

For teachers who wish to use the full version of Thermo-Calc for their teaching class, there is a discounted package available to academic institutions which have authority to teach and examine undergraduate students. This special package is referred to as Academic Network Site Package (ANSP) and you can learn more about it on the Licensing Options page.
