Abstract

Gibbs is a general-purpose python-based Object Oriented set of libraries designed to simulate the multiphysical equilibrium of materials. The developed framework enables the rapid prototyping, validation, and comparison of thermodynamic models to describe the equilibrium between multiple phases for binary systems. The code has the capability of introducing contributions to the free energy that differ from chemical, such as elastic, magnetic, electric, surface tension, in order to describe complex material systems. Gibbs’ engine can be coupled to FiPy, a code designed to simulate the kinetics of materials.
