freesteam Documentation



This is the C++ class documentation for freesteam, generated using the doxygen tool. Please visit for the latest information on freesteam.

Freesteam implements the international-standard steam tables from the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam, IAPWS. The correlations for both IAPWS-IF97 and IAPWS-95 are provided, although the emphasis is on the use of the IAPWS-IF97 correlation.

To get to the meaty bits, see the SteamCalculator, Solver2 and Solver classes, and after that have a look at SatCurve, B23Curve, B13Curve and Boundaries.

Source Code Layout

Here are a few conventions used in the source code

Where possible, C++ references have been used, and methods have been suitably 'constified', but there may still be gaps in that.
