Humid Air Properties - Psychrometrics
Dynamic Link Library
 

C++ dynamic-linked library (dll) of functions used for the development of Windows applications.

Any Windows client application that supports C++ function imports can make use of this library by including it in its deployment.

High-precision calculations of thermodynamic and psychrometric properties of humid air based on the latest mathematical models used in the ASHRAE formulation.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Royalty free distribution for unlimited Windows applications.
  • Full support of .NET, C++, C# framework development environments.
  • 64-bit and 32-bit libraries included.
  • Performs all the calculations implementing the latest mathematical models used to generate the tables for humid air properties and thermodynamic properties of water in the 2009 ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals, namely:
    • Thermodynamic and psychrometric property algorithms from the ASHRAE Research Project 1485.
    • Properties of steam, water and ice from the Industrial Formulation IAPWS-IF97, the Scientific Formulation IAPWS-95, IAPWS Formulation 2008 and IAPWS Formulation 2006. Properties of dry air are from the NIST Reference equation of Lemmon et al.
