About CompuTherm LLC

CompuTherm LLC was established in 1996 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The Pandat software and thermodynamic databases for numerous alloy systems developed by CompuTherm are currently used by hundreds of users worldwide. In addition to the phase diagram calculation and optimization modules, precipitation module and diffusion module are currently being developed in the framework of Pandat software. CompuTherm thermodynamic databases cover Al, Ni, Ti, Mg, Fe, etc. based alloys. The mobility databases for a variety of alloy systems are also being developed. CompuTherm has collaborated with US government and industrial partners on many government sponsored projects in the past 15 years. It also develops tailor-made software and databases for specific applications, provides consulting services to materials industries and collaborates with other institutions working on challenging programs with potential commercial payoffs.


Abstract of the seminar

Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) has recently been highlighted as a methodology that can unlock great potential and benefits in cost-effective materials and process design. The CALPHAD method, which was first developed for the calculation of multi-component phase diagrams, has now been applied to a variety fields in materials science and engineering. The capabilities of CALPHAD-based modeling tools have been extended from calculating phase stability and thermodynamics of a materials system to simulating precipitation and diffusion kinetics. These modeling tools are regularly used by ICME practitioners to accelerate alloy design and development. This presentation will give a brief introduction to the modeling tools developed by CompuTherm based on the CALPHAD method. Unique features of our modeling tools, such as contour diagrams and high-throughput calculations, will be highlighted. Examples will be presented to demonstrate the successful applications of these modeling tools in ICME.
