OpenPhase Studio is a powerful microstructure simulation suite made for metallic materials, ceramics and minerals. Using multi-physics models embedded in the phase-field method, materials processes such as solidification, heat
treatment, mechanical testing and many more can be simulated. OpenPhase is available in two flavours, OpenPhase Studio and OpenPhase Core. OpenPhase Studio is our full-featured microstructure simulation suite with user-friendly
GUI, intuitive simulation setup and on-the-fly data analysis. An open-source C++ library is available with OpenPhase Core, which includes the core OpenPhase functionality and offers full flexibility in building custom simulations.

The development of OpenPhase started in 2008 at ICAMS, one of the world-leading materials simulation institutes. With today over 50 man-years of development, OpenPhase is the most feature-rich phase-field code available. Continuous development
by the OpenPhase Solutions team ensures that OpenPhase is state-of-the-art in simulating microstructure evolution.
Intuitive graphical user-interface
Guided creation of simulations, integrated documentation and presets for various materials and processes.
OpenPhase Studio and OpenPhase Core use a modular structure that allows combining different physical modules into a single simulation or simulate a complex process through consecutive simulation steps.
Powerful diffusion module
Realistic simulation of diffusion and phase transformation. Coupling to Thermo-Calc and Open Calphad enables realistic simulation of complex material systems.
Extensive mechanics module
Finite strain elasticity snd crystal plasticity for complex mechanics simulations of evolving or static microstructures.
Straightforward flow solver
Fluid-flow solver using Lattice Boltzmann method for calculating melt flow during solidification.
Flexible nucleation and microstructure creation
Easy creation of initial microstructures, realistic nucleation based on various properties.
OpenPhase Studio is a robust microstructure modeling software package designed for metallic materials, ceramics, and minerals. Using multi-physics models incorporated in the phase-field approach, several material
processes may be simulated, including solidification, heat treatment, and mechanical testing.
