Testing the Thermodynamic Functions for Saturated Water As A Function of Pressure

I was getting ready to do new curve fits on all the segments of the thermodynamic functions that seemed to require it. However, I realized that I hadn’t yet plotted them all out as a function of pressure since I … Continue reading

Steam Table Functions, Curve Fitting, and Yes, the Graph Project

I’m finally detouring back to fixing the handful of errant segments in the steam table functions I created for my simulation work in the early 90s. This graph, originally posted on March 16th, shows a hiccup in the segment from … Continue reading

First Implementation of Logarithmic Scale On One Axis

I was able to get the x-axis drawn out in a logarithmic scale, get the plot drawn on the same scale, and do it in a somewhat modular fashion. It needs a few pixel-level tweaks still and to be replumbed … Continue reading

Testing the Thermodynamic Functions for Saturated Water As A Function of Pressure–Except…

I started working through the graphs of the various thermodynamic functions vs. pressure and recognized that the standard format wasn’t showing all of the detail contained in the fits across the different ranges of input pressure. If the plotable width … Continue reading

Testing the Thermodynamic Functions for Saturated Water As A Function of Temperature

Here are plots of the standard thermodynamic values for saturated water, all as a function of temperature. Tomorrow I’ll plot them all out as a function of pressure. I extended the range of each function below 32 degrees Fahrenheit to … Continue reading

Reverse Engineering Or… What Was It I Was Trying To Do There?

While continuing the process of turning the JavaScript graph widget into an object I found I needed to create labels of various kinds, which you see added in the examples below. I also wanted to test out some more of … Continue reading

Checking My Steam Table Functions

While I was working out a steam table page yesterday I found it necessary to graph the functions out as a means of verifying them.  Here’s the first graph I created in JavaScript.  It shows not only the curve of … Continue reading
