Knovel Enhances Steam Tables

Jun 16, 2006


Knovel Corporation, a provider of web-based information services, has enhanced the functionality of a research tool for engineers worldwide. Steam Tables, an international standard for calculating the thermodynamic properties of water as developed by the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS), have been boosted by Knovel's technology. The exclusive features include: digitized graphs, unit converter, interactive tables, and high resolution and efficiency calculators.

Knovel Steam Tables integrate with Knovel Library's collection of mechanical and chemical engineering references, such as the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel code, NALCO, Boiler Failure Analysis, and other HVAC and Plant engineering titles. Knovel Steam Tables are enhanced by embedded calculators; digitized live graph plotting capabilities; thermodynamic input variables; multiple input and export options for integration into workflow; a Unit Converter to solve steam properties in every unit system; and a Power Cycle Efficiency calculator that yields the user-defined standard Rankine cycle with other information.
