Abstract [en]

Aiming for better extrapolations and predictabilities of thermodynamic properties of materials, new thermodynamic models are implemented in the third-generation Calphad databases. In these models, each term contributing to the Gibbs energy has an explicit physical meaning. Furthermore, descriptions of thermodynamic properties of materials are valid from 0K up to high temperatures far above the melting point. As a starting point for the development of large self-consistent third-generation database, the new models in the present work are applied to the unary manganese system. Taking into account both the calculated first principles results and experimental data, thermodynamic model parameters are evaluated. Thermodynamic properties predicted using this description, agree very well with available data. The calculated properties vary smoothly in the whole temperature range, which is another important improvement compared to the second-generation databases.

Abstract [en]

Developing the third generation of Calphad databases with more physical basis valid within a wider temperature range is the aim of the present work. Atomistic scale (ab-initio) methods, particularly techniques based on DFT theory, are used for modelling dierent phenomena, so as to gauge the capacity for use in Calphad modelling. Several systems are investigated in this work for studying dierent phenomena, such as magnetism and vibration of atoms. In the case of pure elements (unaries), thermodynamic properties of Mn, Al and C are optimized in the whole temperature range by the help of new models. In addition, DFT results and specic characteristics of these elements are also used to develop models for describing magnetic properties and atomic vibrations. With regards to coupling between DFT and Calphad, the EMTO technique is used for determining the magnetic ground state of the metastable hcp phase in Fe and Mn, and the TU-TILD technique is used for modelling solid phases above the melting point. TU-TILD is also used for calculating thermodynamic properties of bcc Mn at nite temperatures. The same phenomena are investigated in higher-order systems, i.e. the binaries Fe-Mn and Mn-C. Thermodynamic properties and phase diagrams of these systems are assessed against experimental data. Moreover, the revised magnetic model is used for modelling magnetic properties in these systems.

It is shown through this investigation that although the DFT methods are powerful tools for model development and for resolving discrepancies between dierent experimental datasets, they should not be overly-trusted. Caution must be taken when using DFT results, since the approximations and assumptions for computational implementations may cause some errors in the results. Moreover, implementing them into Calphad software as a connected methodology is not currently accessible due to the computational limitations.

It is concluded that coupling between the DFT and Calphad approaches can currently be achieved by using DFT results as an input in Calphad modelling. This will help to improve them until they can be integrated into the Calphad approach by the progress of computational possibilities.

One of the advantages of developing the third generation Calphad databases is the possibility of using the 0 K DFT results in Calphad modelling, since the new databases are valid down to 0 K. This has not been possible in the past, and such potential opens a new door to bring more physics into the Calphad approach.
