Thermo-Calc Software and QuesTek develop new TC-PRISMA material precipitation modeling software

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 TC-PRISMA 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."
