We are proud to announce the official release date of MatCalc 6 on March 31st, 2016. MatCalc, the Materials Calculator, is a state-of-the-art software toolbox for computational materials engineering. It models the whole materials design and fabrication process, covering the three main areas of multicomponent thermodynamics, precipitation kinetics and – new in MatCalc 6 – microstructural evolution. In the following presentation, the features of the software package MatCalc 6 are demonstrated.
Training 2016: “Thermodynamic and kinetic simulations with MatCalc”
Matcalc is a complex software, and thermodynamics and kinetics are complex topics. Consequently, there is a million possibilities to make things right (or wrong). Since we know about this problem, we offer training on the MatCalc software and courses on basic thermodynamics and kinetics as related to problems which can be solved with MatCalc. The next training course takes place in summer 2016 (August, 2nd – 5th) Send an email to Piotr if you need more information.
MatCalc 6 release is scheduled for March 31, 2016.
We are proud to announce the upcoming MatCalc 6 release. This version represents a major step in the evolution of the MatCalc software package, since it extends the capabilities from thermo-kinetic simulations to metallurgical process simulation. MatCalc 6 will become available in a basic and a pro version.
MatCalc 6 will have different licensing strategy, which will be Single-User Single-Site or network licenses. The present beta version that you might want to download and test will work with your present MatCalc 5 license. These beta versions will temporarily allow you also to test the full functionality of the MatCalc 6 pro software. For one of the upcoming versions, definitely for the final release coming March 31, 2016, you need a new license that can be obtained from firstname.lastname@example.org.
On 10th and 11th of December, a workshop for MatCalc users was organized in Vienna. Four participants from industry met together and presented the topics of their interest, including:
– Phase equilibria in steels with Cr, Mo and V
– Precipitation of γ’-phase in Ni-based superalloys
– Evaluation of second ductility trough in the steel at the cooling line
– Simulation of DSC curves
– Simulation of recrystallization process
– Calculation of flow curves including dynamic strengthening mechanisms
Together with Ernst Kozeschnik and Piotr Warczok, the ways of treating these problems with MatCalc were demonstrated and discussed extensively. The points raised by the users gave us also some more ideas for the future optimization of MatCalc towards the better fulfillment of the industrial needs.
Traditionally, the first workshop day was crowned with a social evening during which we have visited a “Christkindlmarkt” (Christmas Market) at Schönbrunn Palace. Afterwards, we enjoyed some Viennese specialties for supper at “LudwigVan” restaurant.
On 9th of December, the official corporate presentation of MatCalc Engineering GmbH has taken place in the company facility in Vienna. We were happy to welcome guests from the industry and universities of the German speaking countries.
During the event, Managing Director Dr. Ahmad Falahati, presented the mission, structure and the scope of activity of MatCalc Engineering GmbH. Subsequently, Prof. Ernst Kozeschnik presented an overview on the history of the MatCalc software development, as well as the new features of MatCalc 6 – the upcoming version of this tool supporting the engineers and researchers in the field of metallurgical processing.
After the presentations, our guests gained more knowledge about our company in the informal atmosphere at the buffet and we had the opportunity to listen to their expectations.
During the program breaks and at the end we enjoyed hearing to short classical music pieces chosen and played by our database manager Dr. Erwin Povoden-Karadeniz.
With many thanks to all the participants for having enjoyable and informative time together.
