Fluid Properties

Caution: All fluid property ("FPROP") files are provided as a convenience, not as supported products. Use at your own risk, and be sure to validate with other sources. The majority of these files are based on NIST data using REFPROP. These files are updated as new data becomes available and corrections are made without notice; be sure to check back often to make sure you are using the latest versions.

Below are links to download common fluid property descriptions. For a more extensive list of properties which are available from CRTech (or to request a fluid property file, or for help developing a custom fluid file), please review our full table of property descriptions.

Note: The full library of fluid properties are included by installing SINDA/FLUINT Version 6.0 or later. The property files are installed in the public documents folder, which is automatically listed within the FloCAD property browser (a feature of the fluid submodel manager). Those installed files are pre-compiled for faster preprocessing and loading. The files listed below are not normally needed; they are provided a courtesy for customers running older versions of SINDA/FLUINT or who need special or custom variations of the standard collection of properties.

The fluid property descriptions are available for CRTech customers and are in a format that is only compatible with CRTech Software

Simulating Tanks and Vessels (click to register)

Tuesday October 22, 9am MT (8am PT, 11am ET)

This webinar explains options for modeling partially-full tanks, cryostats, and other vessels using TD/FloCAD. Topics include phasic nonequilibrium ("twinned tanks"), initializing two-phase mixtures, Ports, and Compartments, HTP (enclosure) ties for heat transfer, and thermally-stratified tanks.

Prerequisite: Introduction to Two-phase Flow webinar

Thursday October 24, 9am MT (8am PT, 11am ET)

This webinar covers options for modeling pipelines using FloCAD Pipes. Topics include the various Pipe form options including choices for walls and heat transfer, customization and initialization, Ports with Pipes, and various options for dealing with horizontal and vertical two-phase flows including chilldown and purging.
