Mechanical Engineering App for fluid thermophysical properties. LuxCalc Fluid Prop I Mobile allows users to quickly and accurately (within 5%) calculate the thermophysical properties of common fluids found in heat transfer books for a user specified temperature. The content are adapted from most commonly used reference books including, Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer (Incropera/DeWitt/Bergman/Lavine), Introduction to Heat Transfer (Incropera/DeWitt) and Principles of Heat Transfer (Kreith/Bohn). Thermophysical Properties Results include density, specific heat, absolute viscosity, thermal expansion, etc. Trend plot of each properties are provided. Over 20 common engineering fluids information can be accessed.
[Top Ten] Quick thermal analysis
The app is intuitive with simple screen navigation. The app enables selection of metric and imperial unit system. Users can set the temperature of the fluid for analysis. The trend plot is very clear for understanding. One drawback of the app is that the functions are limited.
