Simulation Services

A major pillar of our company is to provide technology solutions, as well as services building on the application of the software solutions integrated in MatCalc

Our simulation allows you finding the solutions at lower cost and much faster than via traditional trial and error method. In addition, you gain insight into the processes occurring in the materials at various conditions and help you to understand why a given microstructure appears and how it influences material further evolutions.

Our simulation services include:

Phase equilibria
  • Identification of stable and metastable phases
  • Phase compositions
  • Evaluation of state parameters phases (heat capacities, molar entropies, chemical potentials, etc.)
  • Evaluation of driving forces for the phase formation
Cast structures
  • Chemical composition of primary precipitates
  • Evaluation of microsegregation in the solidified structures
Precipitation kinetics
  • Amount of precipitated phase
  • Precipitate sizes and number densities
  • Precipitate composition
  • Temperature-Time-Precipitate (TTP) diagrams
Microstructure evolution
  • Vacancy concentration
  • Dislocation density
  • Subgrain sizes
  • Grain sizes
  • Recrystallization and recovery processes
Evaluation of thermo-mechanical treatments
  • Homogenization
  • Solution treatment
  • Ageing, annealing
  • Material deformation
Cell simulation
  • Long-range diffusion
  • Coupled precipitation / diffusion
Mechanical property estimation
  • Yield strength predications
  • Flow-curve modeling
Through process modeling
  • Optimization of each process step by simulating the consequences on the final product

You will find some examples of our simulations in our case study collection.
