TRC SOURCE Database: A Unique Tool for Automatic Production of Data Compilations

Abstract

Thermochemical and thermophysical properties of chemicals are the basis of most simulations of commercial processes. The TRC SOURCE database is an extensive archive of numerical experimental values of thermophysical properties extracted from the world's scientific literature. A suite of input/output routines that utilize current database technology has been developed. The database in combination with suitable software enables the automatic retrieval, interpretation, selection, and formatting of a wide range of thermophysical properties. Their output supports the automatic production of user specified compilations and the direct interaction with user-written application programs.
