For more than 30 years, CALPHAD based tools have been used in the development of new alloys and improving the understanding and processing of existing alloys. Such tools and databases though are being continually developed and the recognition that CALPHAD is foundational to an ICME/MGI framework has further increased the demands on both software and database development to meet today’s challenges. This presentation will focus on three such developments:
1 Better integrated thermodynamic and kinetic models with illustrations using Thermo-Calc, DICTRA and TC-PRISMA.
2. CALPHAD databases with broader ranges of composition that are suitable for materials discovery and also materials processing/joining type applications.
3. Software approaches that facilitate better visualization and optimization of trade-offs during the alloy design phase.
