Thermodynamic properties equation
Hi all
I need some help here. i need to manually calculate the thermodynamic properties of few refrigerants such as R134A etc. I am pretty much unsure of what equations i should use.
There are few thermodynamic properties table online ( such as NIST ) but my lecturer does not allow me to refer to.
I have previously used EES ( engineering equation solver ) to obtain the properties. but again my lecturer does not agree to it.
I need these these thermodynamic properties such as specific enthalpy and entropy to design thermodynamic cycle , Organic Rankine cycle.
The thermodynamic properties table by NIST however shows the principal equation to calculate the pressure. But I do not know how to derive the equation in order to calculate the entropy and enthalpy.
It would be very great if someone can share anything on those equations. Thanks

Hi, hafiza ... welcome to RE forums ...
maybe you can tell us something more about yourself here .... http://www.refrigerationengineer.co...p?72NewtoRE ... then you can search RE and find a lot of very good information ... links ... etc ...
As your lecturer is asking you to do all by yourself here is the nice program CoolPack where you can find all what you need:
CoolPack is a collection of simulation models each with a specific purpose. The following simulation purposes are covered:
 Cycle analysis (process design)
 System dimensioning
 System simulation
 Component calculations
 Analysis of operating conditions
 Transient simulation (cooling of an object/room)
 Refrigerant calculations (property plots, thermodynamic & transport properties, comparison of refrigerants)
 Life cycle cost (LCC)
... http://www.en.ipu.dk/Indhold/refrige.../coolpack.aspx ... it is free to download and then play with ...
Hope it will be of some help to you ...
Best regards, Josip
