OpenPhase implements a powerful and flexible multi-physics simulation framework based on the multi-phase-field method. The modular physics models of OpenPhase can be flexibly combined in order to simulate various materials and processes. Physics models include multi-component diffusion, vacancy diffusion, crystal plasticity, finite strain, fluid dynamics, etc. Thermodynamic and kinetic data can be sourced from thermodynamic databases through Thermo-Calc, linearized phase diagrams or Gibbs energy description. The functionality of OpenPhase is demonstrated with examples from recent research reaching from rapid solidification in additive manufacturing, through process simulation of tempered martensite and simulation of creep deformation in Ni-base superalloys. OpenPhase is available as an open source library OpenPhase.rub.de providing the basic functionality of the multi-phase-field model. OP-Extensions for multi-component diffusion and advanced mechanics modules are available together with a graphical user interface OpenPhase Studio from www.OpenPhase-Solutions.com.
