Thermo-Calc Software AB and QuesTek Innovations LLC have jointly developed TC-PRISMA, a powerful new user-friendly software package available from Thermo-Calc Software AB for modeling precipitation in multi-component and multi-phase systems, which is used in conjunction with well-established Thermo-Calc and DICTRA software.
TC-PRISMA evaluates concurrent nucleation, growth and coarsening, and incorporates key models and algorithms from QuesTek's PrecipiCalc precipitation simulation software, which QuesTek has used as part of its Materials by Design technology to computationally design novel new alloys such as Ferrium M54, S53, C61 and C64 for use in aerospace, defense, energy, racing and other industries.
Dr. Charlie Kuehmann, QuesTek's President and CEO, commented that "The launch of TC-PRISMA software is very timely given President Obama's recent establishment of the Materials Genome Initiative, since TC-PRISMA is an important new tool for materials design engineers to computationally design materials. We're excited to have partnered with Thermo-Calc Software, a premier leader in scientific software and databases that involve computational thermodynamics and diffusion-controlled simulations, to accelerate the adoption of integrated computational materials engineering (i.e., ICME) tools."
Dr. Anders Engström, Thermo-Calc Software's President, added that "TC-PRISMA is new, robust, precipitation modeling software built by two globally-recognized leaders in computational modeling, analysis and material design, which significantly enhances Thermo-Calc and DICTRA. To develop TCPRISMA we're pleased to have partnered with QuesTek and incorporated key aspects of their PrecipiCalc software, since QuesTek is well-known for their application of computational materials engineering, software and databases to rapidly design new materials that meet user-defined needs."
