Aluminium-based Alloys Databases

TCAL7 is our thermodynamic and properties database used for application to different kinds of aluminium-based alloys, including but not limited to, industrial grades. MOBAL5 is the corresponding mobility database needed for use with the add-on kinetic modules.

TCAL7 for Thermodynamic and Properties Data

TCAL7 is a thermodynamic and properties database designed for use with aluminium-based alloys, including but not limited to industrial grades, such as:

  • All industrial wrought aluminium alloys from 1000 series to 7000 series
  • All industrial cast aluminium alloys from 1xx.x to 8xx.x
  • Many of the 8000 and 9xx.x series, including Al-Li, Al-Sc, Al-Sn, Al-Ce and Al-Er based alloys

The database consists of 39 elements, including all major alloying elements and many minor alloying elements. It also includes nearly all stable phases in the assessed systems and most important metastable precipitates observed in industrial alloys.

TCAL7 was developed to be used with our entire suite of products: Thermo-Calc, the Add-on Modules, and all available SDKs.

MOBAL5 for Kinetic Data

MOBAL5 is a corresponding mobility database that provides kinetic data for those working with the add-on kinetic modules – the Diffusion Module (DICTRA) and the Precipitation Module (TC-PRISMA) – as well as a few specific calculation types, such as Scheil with back diffusion. If you do not purchase a license for an add-on kinetic module, you most likely do not need a mobility database. One of our technical sales representatives can help you determine whether your work requires a mobility database.

MOBAL5 is compatible and recommended to be used in combination with TCAL7.
