Calculation of Steel Data Using JMatPro

In order to find the optimum balance of product performance, alloying and heat treatment costs the calculation of materials properties of steels as a function of chemical composition and processing can be helpful. JMatPro is a commercial software package which is based on CalPhaD and extended by various models which allow calculation of materials properties. It is now widely used e.g. in steel-industry and also for generation of materials property data for FE-simulation, like casting-, forming- and heat-treatment simulation. Calculation of materials properties can be helpful to extend the knowledge which can be gathered from leading steel databases, like StahlDat SX of the German Steel Institute.
