CALPHAD tools for designing thermodynamic models, calculating phase diagrams and investigating phase equilibria.

Project Description

Note: Unsolicited pull requests are _happily_ accepted!

pycalphad is a free and open-source Python library for designing thermodynamic models, calculating phase diagrams and investigating phase equilibria within the CALPHAD method. It provides routines for reading Thermo-Calc TDB files and for solving the multi-component, multi-phase Gibbs energy minimization problem.

The purpose of this project is to provide any interested people the ability to tinker with and improve the nuts and bolts of CALPHAD modeling without having to be a computer scientist or expert programmer.

For assistance in setting up your Python environment and/or collaboration opportunities, please contact the author by e-mail or using the issue tracker on GitHub.
