A database for thermodynamic information of sulfides and carbo-sulfide in steels has been developed, where the thermodynamic properties of the relevant constituting sub-system of the complex system have been assessed by the CALPHAD (Calculation of Phase Diagrams) approach. The utility of this database is demonstrated in examples of phase diagram calculations of low carbon steels and stainless steels. The calculated results are in good agreement with experimental data. The developed thermodynamic database would be useful in predicting the formation of sulfides and carbo-sulfides in the commercial steels.
