Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to operate established computer programs for calculations of physico-chemical and thermodynamic properties of inorganic materials. Further, students are then able to simulate precipitation processes during different, technologically relevant thermo-mechanical trearments.

Moreover, students are then able to citically assess and interprete computed data.

Subject of course

-) Presentation of ThermoCalc, MatCalc and JMat Pro

-) Learning and practicing of program handling by simple examples

-) Insight into the functionality of databases

-) Critical formulation of input parameters for simulations

-) Validation and critical interpretation of acquired results

-) Simulations in real alloys for high temperature applications
