Workshop on computational thermodynamics and kinetics

The mineAlloy training centre hosted a workshop on ThermoCalc/Dictra software for modelling computational thermodynamics and kinetics. These software packages are very useful tools to understand the effects of chemical composition and heat treatment on the microstructure and performance of different alloys, particularly steels and cast irons.

The workshop was delivered by Prof Christopher Hutchinson and Mr Yuxiang Wu, from Monash University, and it counted with support from ThermoCalc, who made the software available for this workshop. More than 20 researchers (students and postdoctoral fellows) from the mineAlloy ITTC and Deakin University attended in person, but several researchers followed it online. The recording will be available on demand very shortly.
