Instructions for Downloading MTDATA Software
Installing MTDATA for Windows
The file winmt.exe
should be downloaded to a temporary folder (eg mt_temp) and then run to
start the installation, then follow the prompts given. If you already
have an MS-DOS version of MTDATA make sure that you specify a directory
different from your current MTDATA directory. The default directory
given by the installation program (c:\mtdata\winmt) should be suitable.
The demonstration version of MTDATA will run for
30 days. To continue using MTDATA after this time or to use any of the
full databases you should obtain a full licence. Please contact Hugh
for more information.
Please note that for the Demonstration
Version to work successfully on Windows 2000, Windows XP and above,
MTDATA for Windows must be installed and run
for the first time by a user with Administrator privileges
(ie the Administrator, or a user in the Administrators group)
The use of MTDATA for Windows
This demonstration version of MTDATA for Windows
is restricted in the following ways:
- It is licensed for demonstration purposes only.
You will be presented with full licensing conditions during the
- The program will only run for 30 days after
- A restriction has been placed on the number of
components, phases and species that can be used in calculations. The
demonstration limits are up to 3 components with 22 phases containing
up to 27 species in total. An unrestricted MTDATA has 30, 500 and 1000
for these limits.
Example calculations to try:
The data for all these examples should be taken
from the MTDATA Demonstration Database - MTDEMO. This database is
installed with MTDATA for Windows and does not need to be downloaded
separately. It should be noted that the data in the MTDEMO database are
for demonstration purposes only and do not necessarily correspond to
complete systems as will be found in our other databases.
- Ternary phase diagrams
- for the "Fe,Cr,Ni", "Al,Si,Zn", "In,Sb,Ga",
"CaO,SiO2,Al2O3", "KCl,CaCl2,ZnCl2,Cl/-" systems and for the reciprocal
- Binary phase diagrams
- for any of the binary systems within the
above ternary systems, for example the "Al,Si", "Cr,Fe", "CaO,SiO2" and
- Fixed composition, variable
temperature (MULTIPHASE) calculations
- for the above binary or ternary systems, or
for ideal gas and stoichiometric condensed phase calculations selecting
any three components from the Al,C,H,O,Cl,Si system (the demonstration
version of MTDATA for Windows has been limited to three components).
- Aqueous system calculations at fixed
or variable temperature
- for the "H2O,H2SO4,H/+" system. Data are
only valid for low concentrations of H2SO4.
If you feel that the coverage of the
MTDATA demonstration database is not sufficient for you to evaluate
MTDATA properly then please contact Hugh
Davies with the details and it may be possible to provide you
with data more appropriate to your intended application.
