Molybdenum-based Alloys Databases

TCMO1 is our thermodynamic and properties database designed for use with different kinds of molybdenum-based alloys and superalloys. MOBMO1 is the corresponding mobility database needed for use with the add-on kinetic modules.

TCMO1 for Thermodynamic and Properties Data

TCMO1 is a thermodynamic and thermophysical properties database for molybdenum-based alloys and superalloys. All necessary volume data (including molar volume and thermal expansivity) for various alloy phases is available in TCMO1. TCMO1 also comes with the description of electrical resistivity and thermal conductivity, as well as surface tension and viscosity of the liquid.

Molybdenum-based alloys are used in various applications due to their excellent mechanical, thermal, and corrosion-resistant properties. They’re commonly used in aerospace components, electrical contacts, industrial machinery, and high-temperature furnace parts. Additionally, molybdenum is utilized in the production of high-strength steel alloys, which are crucial in construction and automotive industries for their durability and resistance to corrosion and heat.

The molybdenum-based alloys databases – TCMO1 and MOBMO1 – are available for refractory (e.g. Mo-base) superalloys that function at higher temperatures than the Ni-base superalloys. The molybdenum databases include the silicide and borosilicide phases to form SiO2-based scales, which is to overcome the challenge of poor oxidation resistance that happens with these alloys that contain MoO3. 

TCMO1 was developed to be used with our entire suite of products: Thermo-Calc, the Add-on Modules, and all available SDKs. 

MOBMO1 for Kinetic Data

MOBMO1 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 would be happy to help you determine whether your work will require a mobility database.  

MOBMO1 is compatible and recommended to be used in combination with TCMO1.
