CALPHAD (Calculation of Phase Diagrams) is one of the most powerful techniques for Materials Genome and Integrated Computational Materials Engineering (ICME) modeling. The development of the CALPHAD-based method has taken place so quickly that it is not described adequately in conventional textbooks, nor is it covered properly in the majority of existing undergraduate or graduate degree courses in materials science. This course will offer hands-on demonstrations and practical exercises to strengthen the understanding of materials thermodynamics, diffusion, and precipitation. Topics will also cover engineering applications with case studies and hands-on demonstrations.
Students and researchers who work in the field of phase transformation, phase equilibria, or have a demand of computational materials science using thermodynamic and diffusion modeling would benefit from this course. Industrial engineers are also expected to gain valuable insights to the CALPHAD method and their engineering applications.
Course attendees will obtain a comprehensive understanding of CALPHAD fundamentals, open software of computational thermodynamics, and materials and processing design based on phase diagram informatics. Topics will also cover engineering applications with case studies and hands-on demonstrations.
