The ThermophysicalData package contains functions for computing thermophysical, thermodynamic, and thermochemical properties. It uses the CoolProp library, developed at http://www.coolprop.org/ and the NASA Glenn Coefficients for Calculating Thermodynamic Properties, see https://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/CEAWeb/TP-2002-21556.htm.
Each command in the ThermophysicalData package can be accessed by using either the long form or the short form of the command name in the calling sequence.
As the underlying implementation of the ThermophysicalData package is a module, it is also possible to use the form ThermophysicalData:-Command to access a command from the package. For more information, see Module Members.
The ThermophysicalData package has two subpackages. The CoolProp subpackage contains commands to access the CoolProp library more directly than commands in the ThermophysicalData package itself. These commands will be more familiar to users who have used the CoolProp library in other environments.
plot isotherms and quality curves on a pressure-enthalpy diagram
access thermophysical data
create a psychrometric chart to extract and visualize thermophysical properties of humid air
plot saturation dome and isobars on temperature-entropy axes
The CoolProp subpackage contains the following commands:
access CoolProp thermophysical data about humid air
access CoolProp phase data in string form
access thermophysical fluid data from CoolProp
access CoolProp thermophysical fluid data independent of thermophysical state
access CoolProp thermophysical fluid data
The Chemicals subpackage contains the following commands:
returns the chemicals known to ThermophysicalData:-Chemicals
access thermodynamic data known to ThermophysicalData:-Chemicals
list of chemicals known to ThermophysicalData:-Chemicals
description of various fluids available from ThermophysicalData:-CoolProp
