New Python API Free Until 2019

Thermo-Calc 2018a includes a new API called TC-Python which allows users to couple Thermo-Calc calculations with other software in a very open way, for example, with numerical packages like NumPy and SciPy.

We are offering a free trial license of TC-Python to all users with a valid Maintenance & Support Subscription until the end of 2018, but you must contact us to receive your free trial license.

New High Entropy Alloys Databases 

Thermo-Calc 2018a includes new thermodynamic and kinetic high entropy alloys databases. Six new elements (B, Ir, Rh, Sn, Y, Zn) have been added to version 3 of the TCHEA thermodynamic database, extending it to 26 elements, along with more than 100 new binary systems and more than 150 new phases.

MOBHEA1 is the first kinetic database containing atomic mobility data for high-entropy alloys (HEA) from Thermo-Calc Software and is designed to be used in conjunction with TCHEA3.

New Aluminium Mobility Database

MOBAL4 is the new version of our aluminium mobility database. This new database adds the element erbium (Er), bringing it to a 35 element framework. The database includes an improved description of liquid and has many new and updated binaries. It also now includes ternary and quaternary descriptions.
