Default Specific heat in STAR-CD

I have a problem in definition of specific heat in STAR-CD. Methodology guide says: STAR-CD offers input of "mean specific heats". Online help for POLYNOMIAL input says: calculate the "specific heat" Cp as a polynomial function of temperature. Online help for USER-CP coding says: supply desired variations of "mean Cp and Cv" in subroutine SPECHT. The difference between "specific heat" and "mean specific heat" is not clear. Post-processing in Prostar has options for plotting any of them. When I define Cp for ideal gas in polynomial form, the plotted values of "specific heat" are true, but the plotted values of "mean specific heat" are sligtly different. How should I treat POLYNOMIAL input of Cp? Can anybody help?

I also have the same doubt "What is the difference between specific heat and mean specific heat in starCD"

If h is the enthalpy, then the specific heat is dh/dT whereas the mean specific heat is h/T. Or perhaps (h - h_ref)/(T - T_ref) ...

hi Richard and all,about 3 years later.
what h_ref and T_ref mean ? where and how to define them ?
Thanks for any replies .

(sorry for my poor english)
