We present an open source phase field simulation toolkit “OpenPhase” which is based on a multi-phase field multi-component model of Steinbach et al. [Steinbach et al., 1996; Steinbach, 2009]. The toolkit is intended for high quality quantitative simulations of processes that involve different phase transformations. It contains modules that allows simultaneous solving the multi-phase field equations, equations for advection and diffusion of different components, Navier-Stokes equation for a liquid phase flow including the interaction with solid structures, elastic and plastic problem including the diffusion of vacancies. The modular structure of
the project allows for easy extension and modification by adding new modules. Several bench mark studies related to the metallurgical processes will be presented.
The package is distributed in the form of an open and free of charge source code which is available at http:// www.openphase.de.
