Qing Chen and Paul Mason Inducted into ASM Fellows Class of 2022

Two Thermo-Calc Software employees, Prof. Qing Chen and Paul Mason, were inducted into the ASM Fellows Class of 2022, considered one of the highest honors for those working in the field of materials. In addition to being honored by their peers, inductees also serve as advisors to ASM’s board of trustees.

How to Plot Experimental Data

A TTT diagram comparing calculated results with experimental data

Several calculation examples included in Thermo-Calc include experimental values to show the accuracy of the calculation. Comparing calculated data with experimental data can also be very useful in research.

In our latest blog post, we show you how to include your own numerical experimental data in your Thermo-Calc plots. This can also be done in the Free Educational Package. 

The plot shows a TTT diagram comparing calculated results (lines) with experimental data points (triangles and plus signs).

Thermo-Calc Used to Design Frankensteel at Teacher’s Camp

This summer Thermo-Calc was used by teachers at a materials camp at MIT to design and make a self-healing material known as Frankensteel. The camp was put on by MIT to introduce teachers to materials science and give them the resources and knowledge to bring it back to their classrooms. Thermo-Calc Software is proud to support such efforts by donating software to the camp and to the teachers to take back to their schools. You can learn more about the camp and see pictures of the teachers designing their materials at the link below:

Cover of a white paper called Weldability of Nickel-based alloysNew Whitepaper: Weldability of Nickel-based Alloys

A new white paper is available on our website: Weldability of Nickel-based Alloys: Solving Problems with the Assistance of Computational Techniques. The paper highlights four areas where the use of computational thermodynamic software has been an important part of the engineer’s toolbox to help solve weldability challenges.
