Heat treating can be defined as the controlled application of time, temperature, and atmosphere to produce a predictable change in the microstructure of a material. Using CALPHAD-based software, it is possible to make such predictions for multicomponent, multiphase alloys to accelerate design and optimization of new alloys and heat treatment processes. In this webinar, attendees will learn how CALPHAD-based tools can help users:
Reduce the need for costly, time-consuming experiments and extract more understanding from real-world test data
Base decisions on scientifically supported predictions and data
Accelerate materials development while reducing risk
Improve the quality and consistency of finished products through deeper understanding of structural materials and processes
Examples in the Webinar
Examples cover a range of materials including steels, Ni-base superalloys, and Al-base alloys and show users how to:
Calculate furnace activities based on gas composition and temperature
Predict the amount and composition of precipitate phases as a function of alloy chemistry and process temperature
Plot multicomponent phase diagrams, including Lehrer diagrams for complex alloys
Simulate the diffusion of elements in multicomponent alloys as a function of chemistry and temperature
Determine depth profiles during surface hardening treatments
About the Speaker
Paul Mason graduated in 1989 from South Bank University in London with an Honors degree in Physical Sciences and Scientific Computing. Upon graduation, he joined the Atomic Energy Research Establishment at Harwell and worked in civil nuclear power for 14 years focusing on materials R&D issues, particularly at high temperatures. Paul began his career mostly involved in experimental work and then moved into the modeling realm. In 2004, Paul was appointed president of Thermo-Calc Software Inc. when the Swedish based Thermo-Calc Software AB started a U.S. subsidiary. Since then, Paul has been responsible for marketing and sales, technical support, training, and customer relations for the North American market.
