IT’IS Releases New Online Fluid Properties Database and Publishes References Used to Determine Database Values

The IT’IS Foundation announces the release of a new database of fluid properties to complement the existing material parameters database. The new database compiles values on temperature-dependent viscosity, density, heat capacity, and thermal conductivity values for specific fluids. Also newly available are tabulated lists of the references used to determine the values in both the material parameters and fluid properties databases. The new format of the reference list links each database entry to a pdf of the reference(s) used to generate the value.
