Software for Precipitation Kinetics Simulation

In recent years, the variety of generally available software for simulation of precipitation and phase transformation processes has significantly increased in number. While, in the 1990s, the only major computer program for multicomponent phase transformation modeling was the software package DICTRA, between 2000 and 2010 several software codes addressing this research topic have appeared.

An interesting feature in practically all advanced precipitation kinetics codes is the use of computational thermodynamics as the basis for evaluation of driving forces for precipitation, chemical potentials, and multicomponent diffusional mobility data. In most cases, the CALPHAD approach is utilized ...
