Beginning with Thermo-Calc 2016a the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) has been integrated into Thermo-Calc, eliminating the need for users to install two separate software programs.
This integration offers a significant upgrade to the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) as it gives it all the features that were already available within Thermo-Calc, such as overlaying plots and cloning systems.
Try the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) for Free
Users who do not have a Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) license can now try the precipitation calculator for free using one of the three free kinetic demo databases automatically included in the software.
Several examples are available to all users, even those without a license.
Runs on Mac and Linux OS
Now that it is integrated into Thermo-Calc, the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) is supported on several Mac and Linux operating systems. See the System Requirements for a complete list.
Non-Spherical Particles and the Effect of Wetting Angle
You can now calculate heterogeneous nucleation and consider the wetting angle and non-spherical nuclei.
A new theory section has been added to the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) User Guide, which you can find in the Online Help or included as a PDF with your installation.
You can now run TTT simulations with multiple precipitates, something that was not previously available.
In addition, the TTT-diagram has two stop criteria to choose from. In previous versions, only phase fraction was available (with respect to whole system). Now you can choose either Volume fraction of phase or % of equilibrium fraction. For example, you can now calculate 50% of equilibrium fraction and define the average precipitate size (e.g. with a stop at 10 nm). You can also enter several numbers for each stop, for example 1:5:99 % of eq. fraction.
Access to the built-in database package feature, which automatically loads both a thermodynamic and kinetic database upon start up
Configure phases and add composition sets directly from the GUI
Easily configure default settings to quickly access the features you use the most
Clone nodes and full trees
Improved plotting such as adding additional axes and overlaying plots
