Thermo-Calc Online Training

Thermo-Calc Online Training

February 2 – 4, 2021 | Online, broadcast from Stockholm, Sweden

The Thermo-Calc training course is a beginner’s course that we hope will also be useful for those who already have a little experience with the software. The course will only teach the Graphical Mode. It will be given over 3 half-days and may include a little bit of homework before each day.

The course requires no previous knowledge of Thermo-Calc. Some knowledge of thermodynamics of alloys and/or materials science is an advantage, but not a prerequisite.

What You Will Learn

You will learn how to calculate and plot or tabulate stable and meta-stable phase equilibria, property diagrams, and phase diagrams of multicomponent alloys and much more using the latest version of Thermo-Calc. You will also learn how to effectively use Project files in order to perform, save, and share complex calculations.

There may be a very condensed theory section introducing thermodynamic databases and the CALPHAD methodology.

Good to Know

The training course is hands-on with each participant working at their own computer. Much of the presentations will be in the form of teacher-led exercises. The language is English. It is recommended that you use either two separate screens or one large screen in order to be able to follow the online teacher and operate the software at the same time.

There will be possible interaction from students to teachers throughout the training, mostly through a chat-function rather than spoken dialog. In addition to this, special Q-and-A sessions will be scheduled each day.

Download information for our software tools will be sent out the week before the training, together with the digital course material (handouts and project/macro files). You will also receive a temporary training license file for your own computer before training starts.
