Description of the research topic:

In materials science, one of the oldest, but one of the most useful tools is the so-called equilibrium phase diagram, since the knowledge of the transformations in the structure of the materials to be used as a result of temperature and concentration changes is essential in the design-development process. Equilibrium phase diagrams were available to industry and researchers in the early days mainly in graphical form, but from the second half ot the XX. century, in parallel with the development of computer technology, phase diagram calculation methods with thermodynamic foundations began to develop rapidly. The role of phase diagram algorithms and software is very important in industrial and R&D applications, because these software or the sufficiently detailed and accurate databases they produce can be significantly integrated into simulation programs or everyday production. The ESTPHAD method is a thermodynamic-based phase diagram calculation method that is continuously developed for two- and multi-component systems.
