School for Advanced Thermodynamic Assessments

9 h 00 min - 17 h 30 min


The aim of the school is to provide basic understanding of the integration of experimental data with ab-initio, Molecular Dynamics and Monte Carlo calculations using models developed within Computational Thermodynamics (Calphad). A central part of the school will be the practical assessment of model parameters of ternary systems and the integration of this in a multicomponent thermodynamic database. Such databases are necessary for simulations of phase transformations and microstructures and consequently properties of real materials

The central theme of the teaching is computational thermo-dynamics and the school will teach practical assessment of ternary systems based on thermodynamic and kinetic mod-els. The use of different kinds of theoretical and experi-mental data will be explained and it will be shown how theoretical calculations can be combined with experimental data by thermodynamic models and integrated in multi-component databases applicable to modern materials.


Who should participate ?

PhD students, post-docs and scientists :

  • working with assessment of thermodynamic systems and interested to gain a better understanding of model-ling and how to handle the assessment software,
  • wishing to enhance their comprehension as to how atomistic simulations can be applied for establishing multi-components phase equilibria and diagrams,,
  • interested in learning how to model defects, interstitial solutions, chemical and magnetic ordering,
  • wishing to become familiar with the coupling between thermodynamics, phase diagrams and microstructures,
  • interested in integrating thermodynamic databases in simulations of phase transformations.
