MatCalc is a complex software, and modeling of materials microstructure and properties is a complex topic. Consequently, there is a million of possibilities to make things right (or wrong). To give the beginners a helping hand, we offer training on the MatCalc software and courses on basic thermodynamics, kinetics and mechanics as related to problems which can be solved with MatCalc. Currently, the training content is divided between two courses. The first one covers the MatCalc handling and the thermokinetic simulations of precipitates. Based on this content, the second course explores the advanced simulations of the microstructure evolution (vacancy dynamics, grain growth, work hardening, recovery, recrystallization) and the estimation of the material’s mechanical properties (yield strength, flow curves).
