FORTRAN program to calculate the mole fraction of precipitates and wt% of solute in ferrite. It also calculates the effective diffusivity which is proportional to the interface velocity of a precipitate considering a multicomponent system. The program should not be used for systems which contain more than one precipitate phase. This program uses MTDATA.

The files associated with this module are :

creep_module.mpiContains the inputs for MTDATA.
creep_module.mprResult from MTDATA calculations.
comp_dataContains composition in the order specified in Readme.txt file.
temp_onlyYou need to specify the temperature values in this file for the corresponding composition in the file "comp_data". The temperature at which phase stability calculation is to be performed will be read from this file.
MTDATA_OUTPUTAll the calculations done by MTDATA are printed in this file.
ppt_fraction_cContains mole fractions of all the phases.
SOLID_SOLNThis file contains information about the wt% of dissolved solutes in ferrite. The format of this file is Cr Mo W V Nb N C (all in wt%). Note this format, since the file itself will not have any information about the format.
Deff.datContains the effective diffusivity (Deff) of M23C6, M6C, Laves Phases, HCP_A3, M7C3, VN, NbC and NbN respectively. The format of the file follows the same order.
one_by_D_eff.datThis file contains information about 1/Deff. Format of the file is same as in "Deff.dat". The values in this file can be approximated to the interface velocity of a precipititate considering multicomponents NOT multiphase. Calculated as in reference 1.

Follow the steps listed below to use the module :
