ThermodynamicsThe following GUI and/or Excel files and MATLAB functions can be used to read data and determine properties from the Thermodynamic Tables.
Please do not edit/modify any of these files/functions. They contain copyrighted information. The MATLAB functions are in an encrypted format (*.p extension). These can be used as any other *.m file. The syntax help for these functions are shown in the table below.
The best way to download the files is to use the right-click and save as option.
|Graphical User Interface (GUI)||Thermodynamic GUI.zip
||Unzip into a folder and execute the file thermoGUI.p in MATLAB. The GUI can be used to determine all properties.|
|Tables||Thermodynamics Tables SI Units.xlsx
Thermodynamics Tables English Units.xlsx
|These Excel files have all the properties listed in a format similar to most textbooks|
|Water: Superheated (steam)
|Incompressible Substance Model (ISM)||ism.p||ism_help.m|
|Ideal Gas Model (IGM):
Properties for air
Specific heats of common gases
Isentropic processes for air
Isentropic processes for common gases
While these functions have been used for 3-5 semesters in a
Thermodynamics course for Mechanical Engineers, they
have not been tested for all cases. Please let the Project Director Dr. Priya Goeser know
if you find any errors and/or if you wish to use them for any similar courses/educational purposes.
