IAPWS Industrial Formulation 1997
For background information about the IAPWS Industrial
Formulation 1997 for the Thermodynamic Properties of
Water and Steam (IAPWS-IF97) and references see
IAPWS-IF97 release .
The IAPWS-IF97 divides the thermodynamic surface
into five regions (see figure below):
- region 1 for the liquid state from low to high pressures,
- region 2 for the vapor and ideal gas state,
- region 3 for the thermodynamic state around the critical point,
- region 4 for the saturation curve (vapor-liquid equilibrium),
- region 5 for high temperatures above 1073.15 K (800 °C) and
pressures up to 10 MPa (100 bar).
Properties of Water and Steam calculator
development. Only properties from basic equations are covered for regions
1, 2 and 3. Backward equations are not implemented. For Region 3 density
must be calculated from pressure with Newton iteration. All regions give
correct verification results.
It seems that not all users realise the kind of software which is
described here. When you calculate properties the program runs on your
machine! Please use view Page source to review the source code
or click this link for fancy listing. This is
NOT external program calculator! That's why it is licensed by the following
