Rcrust is a free software tool that performs phase stability calculations with path dependence. In these calculations pressure (P) temperature (T) and bulk composition (X) can vary simultaneously.

Rcrust is free to Download and use under the GNU copyleft.


About & Getting started

​Rcrust is a thermodynamic modelling tool that uses a compiled form of "meemum" from the Perple_X suite of programs to calculate the phase stabilities of points in P-T-X space. The strength of "Rcrust" is that it allows
