ThermoCalc predicts influence of high temperature on microstructure.
Through the combination of the specialist expertise in metallurgy, materials, fabrication and performance and its access to cutting-edge technology, TWI has the facilities and knowledge for assessing microstructure in order to optimise fabrication methods, establish the performance or select and qualify materials.
Case study: A 20C-10Co-5Mo steel containing 0.005%C had been diffusion bonded. Thermo-Calc was used to predict what influence would have diffusion bonding above 1000◦C on the microstructure and thus inferred whether mechanical properties could be recovered.
