Thermo Calc Software

What is the Thermo-Calc Software Learning Hub?

Generate thermodynamic and phase diagrams. Operating system:Windows XP. Report incorrect info. Perform calculations of your data using thermodynamic databases created by expert evaluation of experimental data via the CALPHAD method. Generate binary phase and ternary phase diagrams, manage scripts, and select to work with Steels, Ti, Al, Mg and Ni-alloys, multi-component oxides, and many other materials.

Thermo-Calc 6.0.5 could be downloaded from the developer's website when we last checked. We cannot confirm if there is a free download of this software available.


The software lies within Education Tools, more precisely Science Tools. This program was originally created by Thermo-Calc Software. The following versions: 6.0, 5.0 and 3.0 are the most frequently downloaded ones by the program users. According to the results of the Google Safe Browsing check, the developer's site is safe. Despite this, we recommend checking the downloaded files with any free antivirus software.

Thermodynamic and Properties Demo Databases:
  • The program's installer files are generally known as tcw2.exe, Tcw3.exe, Thermo-Calc-3.0.1.exe, Thermo-Calc-3.0.exe or Thermo-Calc-3.1.exe etc.
  • From the developer:. Thermo-Calc is a powerful software package used to perform thermodynamic and phase diagram calculations for multi-component systems of practical importance.
  • Calculations are based on thermodynamic databases produced by expert evaluation of experimental data using the CALPHAD method.
  • Databases are available for Steels, Ti-, Al-, Mg-, Ni-alloys, multi-component oxides and many other materials.
  • You may want to check out more software, such as f x -Viewer, Trachtenberg Speed Math or Pocket Stars, which might be related to Thermo-Calc.
  • The Thermo-Calc Software Learning Hub combines the best of both instructor led training and digital on-demand self-paced learning.
  • Avoid the need to wait for fixed training course dates – access the same content, lectures, and instructor-led exercises – when its most convenient for you.
  • Go at your own pace, watch and re-watch the lessons for a full year. Without time constraints of a live course, more content is available than in our live courses – and new content is being added regularly.
  • For a single subscription fee, access to training is included for Thermo-Calc, the Add-On Diffusion Module (DICTRA), the Add-On Precipitation module (TC-PRISMA) and the TC-Python API.
  • Need live help? We’ve got you covered with live office hours each month. Meet with the instructors and bring your questions – or just listen to the questions others have.
Mobility Demo Databases:
  • As well as introductory lectures, instructors will walk through and discuss real world examples that correlate calculations with microstructures and other metallurgical concepts, spanning a wide range of material types.
  • Interested in seeing a few lessons?
  • Simply choose a course in the Course List, and look for:.
  • MCUDEMO: Includes Cu, Ti, and Zr (subset of MOBCU)

Computer Exercises (and Solutions)

A set of computer exercises developed for students to work with the thermodynamics and kinetics software. The examples are of three general categories:

  • Thermodynamic properties of elements and compounds
  • Phase diagrams
  • Equilibria in gases

Some example exercises include:

  • Define the system Co. What phase is most stable at 1 bar and 1000K?
  • Evaluate the molar Gibbs energy of the compound Fe3C at 1000 °C.
  • Calculate the ternary phase diagram W-Co-C at 1 bar and 1400 °C. Perform the calculation by varying the mole percent of Co and C.
  • Compute the carbon activity of a gas made by mixing 1 mole of H2 and 1 mole of CH4 at 1 bar and 1200 K.

Solutions to the computer exercises are included in the teaching material.
