Diffusion module (DICTRA) Training

This two-day course for new and experienced users teaches you hands-on how to solve engineering types of problems involving diffusional transformation using the Diffusion module (DICTRA).

Multicomponent diffusion theory and mobility databases are also discussed in the course.

Some prior knowledge of basic diffusion theory, thermodynamics and phase transformations in materials is an advantage but not a requirement. The same is true for experience using Thermo-Calc.

The course will be given in the form of teacher-led exercises covering many different types of Diffusion module (DICTRA) simulations. In addition to this, there will also be lectures on diffusion theory and Diffusion module (DICTRA) concepts and some time for individual work on the computer.

The language is English.
