- Steam Tables for SIMULINK
written by Miguel Cecenas(email@example.com).
Steam properties ( includes pressure and temperature tables for saturation
temperature/pressure, enthalpy, entropy and specific volume) programmed
as a C S-function for use in Matlab/Simulink (DOS, Windows and Sun versions
available). These are available free of charge with no restrictions upon
their use. Upgraded versions for Simulink V3 will be made available soon.
Copies of the Dos and Windows (for Matlab/Simulink) files are available locally on this WWW server.
- Downloadable steam tables for windows (as DLL) and DOS, using the 1967 ASME steam tables for steam/water properties (http://www.winsim.com/steam/steam.html)
