The purpose of ThermoData Engine (TDE) is to provide critically evaluated thermodynamic and transport property data using the SOURCE database--a dynamically curated database established at NIST. The critical evaluation is based on:
ThermoData Engine is the first product fully implementing all major principles of the concept of dynamic data evaluation formulated at NIST/TRC. This concept follows the model of an expert system, requiring a large electronic database capable of storing essentially all 'raw' experimental data known to date with detailed descriptions of relevant metadata and uncertainties.
An inference engine combines these data with state-of-the-art property prediction schemes and heuristics that emulate the critical evaluation process of a domain expert. Combined in one package, TDE generates recommended data compilations automatically 'to order'. The NIST/TRC SOURCE data archival system, currently containing approximately 6.1 million experimental data points, is used in conjunction with ThermoData Engine as a comprehensive storage facility for experimental thermophysical and thermochemical property data. Currently, this database contains property data for approximately 24,000 pure compounds, 53,000 binary mixtures, 15,000 ternary mixtures, and 7,200 chemical reactions.
PC with Microsoft® Windows® XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2012, or Windows 10. At least 2 GBytes of memory is recommended.
