This two-day training course will introduce and teach two different modes of Thermo-Calc software: the Graphical Mode and the Console Mode. The Console Mode is the legacy mode with a versatile command line interface. The Graphical Mode is a modern, easy-to-use interface which is becoming more powerful with each new release.
No previous knowledge of Thermo-Calc or computational thermodynamics is necessary. Some familiarity with materials science, thermodynamics and/or metallurgy is an advantage but not a requirement.
The course is taught in English.
You will learn how to calculate and plot or tabulate stable and meta-stable phase equilibria, property diagrams and phase diagrams of multicomponent alloys and much more using the latest version of Thermo-Calc. You will also learn how to effectively use Macro Files and Project Windows in order to perform, save and share complex calculations.
There will be a condensed theory section introducing thermodynamic databases and the CALPHAD methodology.
The training course is hands-on with each participant working at their own computer. Much of the presentations will be in the form of teacher-led exercises. The language is English.
Printed course material and digital example files are given out. Lunch and refreshments are also included in the course fee.
