In computational thermodynamics, known as the CALPHAD (CALculation of PHAse Diagram) method, the Gibbs energy of individual phases is modeled in terms of their crystal structures. The model parameters are evaluated with data from both phase equilibria and thermochemistry and collected in thermodynamic databases. Starting from pure elements, CALPHAD provides a mechanism to build thermodynamic databases for binary, ternary, and multi-component systems.
