The application of state-of-the-art software is an important basis for the research activities at the Materials Center Leoben (MCL). In addition to using available scientific and commercial programs, we are developing in-house software to facilitate a user-friendly handling of complex calculation workflows.

The currently available software tools from the Materials Center Leoben (MCL) in the field of materials development address the investigation of segregation at surfaces and grain boundaries, the ab-initio determination of elastic constants and the calculation of the temperature-dependent stacking fault energy in steels.

In the area of structural durability a software for the determination of fatigue crack growth for different notch and component geometries under variable amplitude loading has been developed.

Upon request, we will be happy to develop customized software solutions for your technical problems.
