Coupling TQ-Interface with Precipitation Models for Gas Turbine Applications

Nickel alloys are used across the gas turbine engine industry due to their excellent high temperature strength and fatigue performance. The microstructure of the alloy, such as the grain size and the precipitate distribution, play an important role in the development of the macroscopic properties. For this reason, the heat treatment and ageing steps are carefully designed with the use of CALPHAD and precipitation kinetics tools.

In this webinar a multi-component mean-field precipitate evolution code will be presented along with a newly developed graphical user interface. The GUI is developed in MATLAB, but the underlying code uses the TQ Fortran interface to extract the thermodynamic and mobility information from Thermo-Calc.

This webinar is part of our Expert User Series, which invites experts from industry and academia to present their work with Thermo-Calc products.
