I have just attended the virtual DGM meeting which is concluded by the award presentation. My congratulations go to Katharina Esleben from University of Siegen and her co-authors, who have received the Werner-Köster award for their article Effect of Cr and Ni on the microstructural evolution in Co–Re–Cr–Ni alloys in the International Journal of Materials […]
It is a common misconception that thermodynamic calculations can only be used for processes that are in equilibrium. In fact, there is a lot to learn from an Integrated Thermodynamic Databank System like FactSage even if you are far away from equilibrium! As example we consider the popular Fe-C system: If you choose all phases
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
I have recently been asked what FactSage can offer a potential customer working with cast Magnesium alloys. The short answer is: A lot!
