Abstract

Knowledge of psychrometric properties is the basic requirement for environmental measurements and drying processes. The software GRAPSI_DRAW is capable of calculating the psychrometric properties and simulating the basic psychrometric processes with the precision of analytical methods, also showing the results in charts plotted on the computer screen.
