Thermo-Calc Academic is a limited version that can be used for one year and is intended only for educational purposes in an academic environment. It is limited in the sense that Thermo-Calc and the Add-on Diffusion Module (DICTRA), Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) and Process Metallurgy Module can only handle up to three components each. In comparison, the full version of Thermo-Calc and the Add-on Modules can handle systems with up to 40 components.
The included demo thermodynamic and mobility databases are relatively small and are intended for evaluation purposes only. The full version of the software can be ordered with more complete databases, as described in the database section.
