AMS 12 06 Modelling thermoelectric propertiesIn the first part of the project two sulphur systems will be selected based on the results of a high-throughput density functional investigations. The electronic transport properties of these two systems... Continue reading "Modelling thermoelectric properties"
DEM A2 01 Trends in grain-boundary segregationThe project aims at building simplified models of the bonding which governs the segregation of light elements at and cohesion of grain boundaries in steel. The project is divided into three major parts.... Continue reading "Trends in grain-boundary segregation"
DFG SFB/TR103 C1 Comparison of Ni-based and Co-based superalloysSingle crystal superalloys based on Ni are commonly used as turbine blades in industrial gas turbines for aero engines and power plants. The observation of a stable Co3(Al,W) phase with L12 structure showed... Continue reading "Comparison of Ni-based and Co-based superalloys"

STKS 08 04 Precipitation and deformation in Al-alloysAluminium alloys importance on the broad fields of engineering is unbroken and therefore the research of scientific backgrounds is still of significant interest. The understanding of complex processing... Continue reading "Precipitation and deformation in Al-alloys"
STKS 11 03 Express Support for CALPHAD usersSTKS has expertise in Thermodynamic and Diffusion Calculations and can provide solutions for related problems by internal and external demands. Support on simulations, information about thermodynamic models,... Continue reading "Express Support for CALPHAD users"
STKS 11 04 Sapiens MundiIn order to use all theoretical tools available for modeling Gibbs energies, a new type of CALPHAD Gibbs energy database is created and extended to include more elements such as Co, MN, Nb, Re, Ru, Ti,... Continue reading "Sapiens Mundi"
STKS 16 04 Mg-Al alloy solidificationThe 3D grain structure of an Mg-Al alloy after solidification will be simulated. Nucleation will be treated according to the model as described in dependent on the balance between heat extraction and release... Continue reading "Mg-Al alloy solidification"
