Water and Steam, Thermophysical Properties for MATLAB

Functions for calculating thermodynamic properties using IAPWS equations


  • Thermodynamic properties based on IAPWS-IF97 equations
  • Transport properties based on recent IAPWS equations
  • Provides a rigorous basis for design, modeling, and simulation
  • Includes IAPWS-IF97 forward and backward equations
  • All functions derive from published equations, parameters, and coefficients
  • Accuracy of coefficients and results can be checked against published data


Water and Steam, Thermophysical Properties for MATLAB is a suite of functions used to calculate thermodynamic properties according to the IAPWS Industrial Formulation 1997 for the Thermodynamic Properties of Water and Steam, with transport properties calculated using the recent IAPWS equations. This function suite is designed to carry out engineering design calculations in the MATLAB environment for processes and equipment that use water or steam or where water vapour is present, such as wet air compression and HVAC (heating, ventilating, and air conditioning). Functions may also be incorporated into Simulink simulations to support dynamic simulation of process plant with rigorous properties for water and steam.

This product is generally used by mechanical, chemical, and process and process control engineers to carry out design, analysis, modeling, and dynamic simulation for steam-generating and power plant, water and steam supply and distribution systems, coolers, condensers, wet air handling and air compression plant, and HVAC. In addition, this product extends the capabilities of MATLAB and Simulink as an engineering environment for the design and simulation of equipment, plant, and processes using water and steam. It facilitates the use of MATLAB as an environment for teaching thermodynamics through examples based upon the properties of water and steam.
