TCNI12 is our thermodynamic and properties database designed for use with different kinds of Ni-based alloys and superalloys. MOBNI6 is the corresponding mobility database needed for use with the add-on kinetic modules.
TCNI12 is a thermodynamic and thermophysical properties database for Ni-based alloys and superalloys. All necessary volume data (including molar volume and thermal expansivity) for various alloy phases is available in TCNI12. TCNI12 also comes with the description of electrical resistivity and thermal conductivity, as well as surface tension and viscosity of the liquid.
The database has been developed in a CALPHAD spirit with all of the constituent binary systems assessed for their full range of composition including all phases, plus all of the Ni-rich ternary systems, and many other ternary systems as well, in order to give an accurate thermodynamic description of the multicomponent systems of interest for various Ni-based alloys and superalloys including, but not limited to:
Hastelloy and the Haynes alloys
CMSX single crystal alloys
Experimental Co-based superalloys and medium- to high-entropy alloys
TCNI12 was developed to be used with our entire suite of products: Thermo-Calc, the Add-on Modules, and all available SDKs.
MOBNI6 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 requires a mobility database.
MOBNI6 is compatible and recommended to be used in combination with TCNI12.
