Annual MTDATA Users Group Meeting

The meeting will feature talks from NPL staff about the latest MTDATA developments and future plans along with presentations from industrial and academic users.

The MTDATA Users Group is a club for current and prospective users of MTDATA. There is no membership fee but a small charge is made for attending a Users Group meeting. These are held annually at NPL, in November, during which users are able to meet each other and hear about new features and future development plans. Presentations by industrial and academic users, illustrating the practical applications of MTDATA, are also featured.

Recent meetings, for example, have included talks and posters entitled:

  • Ladle Degassing: Linking CFD with MTDATA
    Mansour Al-Harbi (University of Leicester)

  • Existing databases - a possible source for generating new thermochemical data and a means of validating existing data
