How to create a private database in FactSage – A recipe

FactSage databases constitute the largest set of evaluated and optimized thermodynamic databases for inorganic systems in the world [1]. However, in case your system of interest is not (fully) covered by commercial databases, the development of own, i.e. private, databases might be required. This blogpost outlines how you can create a private database in FactSage […]

Li2O and P2O5 in the GTOx thermochemical database

GTT's Logo

The GTOx oxide database was developed in-house at GTT-Technologies and in close cooperation with Forschungszentrum Jülich, IEK-2, specially with Elena Yazhenskikh. The thorough literature review  was performed concerning phase diagram information and thermochemical experiments (enthalpies of formation and transformation, component activities, oxygen partial pressures etc.). GTOx includes a description for different combinations of oxides, e.g.

Calphad Optimizer

The latest FactSage release, FactSage 8.2, comprises a completely new tool to facilitate the development of thermodynamic databases based on the Calphad methodology – the Calphad Optimizer (Figure 1). Figure 1: The new Calphad Optimizer in FactSage 8.2. The goal of database development is to derive a set of self-consistent thermochemical parameters that allow the
