Fluid Property Packages

GASPAKTM

Originally developed by Cryodata Inc., based on NIST research and published literature, GASPAK provides 42 state and transport properties for 33 fluids from the triple point to high temperatures. The GASPAK property estimation algorithms use a highly accurate variable-term Helmholtz equation. Note – not all properties are available for all fluids.

Available: As an Excel Add-In for function-only access to the fluids and properties (version 3.35) and tested on multiple Windows operating systems, including the Windows 8 and 10 (64 bit) OS, as well as the MAC version of Excel (Excel 2011).  Fortran source code is also available (version 3.32).

HEPAKTM

Originally developed by Cryodata Inc., based on NIST research and published literature, HEPAK calculates thermophysical properties of helium-4 (4He) from fundamental state equations, valid from 0.8 Kelvin or the melting line to 1,500 Kelvin, including the superfluid range, the lambda line, and liquid vapor mixtures.  As a function of pressure, calculations are valid up to 20,000 bars between 80 and 300 Kelvin and valid up to 1,000 bars outside of this temperature range.

Available: As an Excel Add-In for function-only access to the fluids and properties (version 3.40) and tested on multiple Windows operating systems, including the Windows 8 and 10 (64 bit) OS, as well as the MAC version of Excel (Excel 2011).  Fortran source code is also available (version 3.40).

He3PakTM

Developed by Dr. Yonghua HUANG, He3Pak calculates both thermodynamic and transport properties of helium-3 (3He) from fundamental state equations, valid from 2.6 mK to 1,500 K and pressures up to 20 MPa.

Available: As a stand-alone executable, static library (*lib), and ActiveX DLL (32bit version 2.0 and 64bit version 2.0.2).


Material Property Packages…

Originally developed by Vincent Arp at NIST and based on NIST research and published literature, METALPAK is a basic reference computer program for the thermal properties of 14 metals. It is founded primarily upon extensive data collected and summarized by the National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST), with some additional reference data from the Thermophysical Properties Research Center, which at the time was at Purdue University, and the National Physical Laboratory in the UK..

Available: As a Command Line executable (32bit, and tested on the Windows 8 and 10 64bit OS). Fortran source code is also available.

CPPAKTM

Originally developed by Vincent Arp and Jerry Hust at NIST and based on NIST research and published literature, CPPAK is related to METALPAK and is used to calculate specific heats of a number of materials, 21 of which are not available in METALPAK..

Available: As a Command Line executable (32bit, and tested on the Windows 8 and 10 64bit OS). Fortran source code is also available.

EXPAKTM

Originally developed by Vincent Arp and Jerry Hust at NIST and based on NIST research and published literature, EXPAK is related to METALPAK and is used to calculate thermal expansivities of a number of materials, 28 of which are not available in METALPAK..

Available: As a Command Line executable (32bit, and tested on the Windows 8 and 10 64bit OS). Fortran source code is also available.


Superconductivity Analysis…

A suite of software products providing comprehensive analysis tools utilized in technologies critical to successful design and operation superconducting magnets including electromagnetic and thermo-hydraulic analysis. Developed by Dr. Luca Bottura, begun during his graduate studies, and enhanced since through work in this field, most recently at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland.

Available: As a UNIX and LINUX Fortran source codes.
