A numerical model is presented to simulate the diffusional transport of oxygen and that of an alloying element, within a 1-D binary Ni alloy, leading to the selective oxidation of the alloying element and the formation of an internal oxide precipitate. This specific model is written in MATLAB and, with the aid of the Matlab Toolbox, is coupled to the ThermoCalc extensive database. A reaction time is introduced to overcome problems related to the difficulty of formation of the internal oxide. Two cases are considered: Al as the alloying element for which the solubility product of the oxide forming elements is small, and Mn for which it is large.
