The focal point of this software tool is prediction of microstructure evolution on a time and space-resolved scale, including complex alloys. MICRESS is based on the phase-field method and is capable of simulating solidification and solid state phase transformations in multiphase alloys in 2-D and 3-D. Coupling of MICRESS and Thermo-Calc has been recently implemented, allowing for a thermodynamically consistent simulation of multicomponent alloys. It operates on SGI/Irix, PC/Windows, and PC/Linux systems.
