Dr. Qing Chen, director of database development at Thermo-Calc Software, will be giving an invited presentation as part of the Hume-Rothery Symposium.
A Tale of Two Approaches: From Phase Equilibria to Materials Properties Qing Chen, Thermo-Calc Software
Date: Wednesday, March 17, 2021
Time: 9:10 AM
Location: Hume-Rothery Symposium
A link between the development of Dr. JC Zhao’s diffusion-multiple approach and the CALPHAD approach is revealed. They followed almost the same successful path: started with getting phase equilibrium data, then extended for obtaining diffusivity data, and recently applied to harvest more and more other materials property data. Dr. Zhao’s systematic study of a large number of alloy systems has provided indispensable input for CALPHAD modeling and contributed significantly to the development of CALPHAD thermodynamic, kinetic, and property databases. In this talk, I examine the development of the two approaches and focus on our efforts at Thermo-Calc Software in modeling various materials properties of multicomponent solution phases and providing relevant databases for materials design and process optimization.
