Copper-based Alloys Databases

TCCU6 is our thermodynamic and properties database designed for use with copper-based alloys. MOBCU5 is the corresponding mobility database needed for use with the add-on kinetic modules.

TCCU6 for Thermodynamic and Properties Data

TCCU6 is a thermodynamic and properties database for copper-based alloys. It includes nearly all stable phases in the assessed systems that may form in as-cast and aged Cu-based alloys.

TCCU6 was developed to be used with our entire suite of products: Thermo-Calc, the Add-on Modules, and all available SDKs.

MOBCU5 for Kinetic Data

MOBCU5 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.

MOBCU5 is compatible and recommended to be used in combination with TCCU6.

Publications on the Development of TCCU and MOBCU

The following publications discuss the development of the TCCU and MOBCU databases. The first one is Open Access and the second is made available through a generous agreement with J-STAGE.
