Cemented Carbides Database
TCCC1 is a thermodynamic and properties database used in applications such as cemented carbide-alloy design and processing, including heat treatment.
TCCC1 includes data for molar volumes, enabling the calculation of density and lattice parameters (for cubic structures), coefficients of thermal expansion, and/or relative length change. However, the molar volume data incorporated has no pressure dependence. It can be used with satisfactory results for cemented carbides with cobalt, iron, and/or nickel binder.
TCCC1 was developed to be used with our entire suite of products: Thermo-Calc, the Add-on Modules, and all available SDKs.
TCCC1 does not have a corresponding mobility database.
