As the third International Workshop on High Entropy Materials was organized by the Department of Materials Science & Engineering in Kanpur India, three weeks ago, Thermo-Calc software and TCHEA databases enjoyed a host of references to the opportunities created by computerized applications. At a vibrant and compelling gathering of great minds, Bhanu Prasad Babburi, Director at Bhanu Scientific Systems and the Thermo-Calc Software agent for India, participated.
Genuine Interest in High Entropy Alloy (HEA)
At the event, there was a lot of focus on HEA and computational tools.
“There were a lot of presenters who referred to Thermo-Calc software and the TCHEA databases”, Bhanu Prasad Babburi relays.
This is to no surprise, as HEA research is of high interest for scientists, engineers and researchers, yet not fully converted to industrial scale production or big scale manufacturing. Niched areas such as aerospace nuclear and space, are beginning to produce small and critical parts. Thus, it is of high importance to understand the properties of materials, and to create a foundation for further research and development. Thermo-Calc software and TCHEA databases are used to understand the material properties and reduce cost of research by avoiding trials.
