Our group has been evaluating, curating, and facilitating collaborating in the thermophysical property community for the past 75 years.
We maintain a great number of periodical compilations and electronic databases that have become source data for scientific research and industrial process design. Our databases have covered thermophysical and some transport properties of organic systems. Recently we have begun working with the Materials Genome Initiative to expand our databases and data curation systems to metallic systems to in an effort to facilitate industrial modelling and alloy development cycles. We provide critically evaluated, structured data--including well defined compositions and uncertainties for experimental data--for pure compounds, binary mixtures, ternary mixtures, and chemical reactions through our variety of dynamic databases. Our work integrates with the Fluid Characterization Group (which produces high quality measurements over a wide range of temperature, pressure, and compositions )and Theory of Modeling of Fluids group (which develops thermodynamic and transport property models for fluid properties).
The Thermodynamics Research Center performs several functions related to providing state-of-the-art thermodynamic data:
