Understanding Solidification in Selective Laser Melting

Additive manufacturing is definetely a “hot topic” these days. And it is not only hot because of the extreme temperatures needed for processes like Selective Laser Melting (SLM) of molybdenum alloys! SLM of molybdenum alloys deserves attention because it combines a manufacturing process of the future with a material system that has the potential to …

How do I add “Balance” as amount for Fe?

I have just been asked by an experienced FactSage user how to add “Balance” when specifying an alloy composition in FactSage. This is one of the features that is very useful but unkown to many, so we should explain it better! This is why we started the GTT-blog anyway… So, let’s consider the case when …
