Precipitates appear frequently in processed alloys. On some occasions, these are introduced intentionally to improve material strength. In other cases, the appearance of precipitates might be disturbing, e.g. intermetallics in specific welded parts. Undoubtedly, an insight into the precipitation evolution during the process is of a great value.

With over 20 years of experience on this specific topic, our models have proved their realistic functionality of prediction in different applications. Our developed solutions and the approach for the prediction of the precipitate/matrix interfacial energy and the size evolution of the precipitates are broadly recognized in the scientific community. We are able to track the precipitates sizes, numbers and compositions of them during the whole thermomechanical process chain.

Typical application examples:
