New to Compressible Flow. thermophysicalProperties file

I am currently running a case, where I can no longer discount some effect of compressibility. Trouble is I have no experience of running anything compressible.
I am trying either rhoSimplecFoam or rhoSimpleFoam, thinking it would be a quick switch over from my current simpleFoam case. Unfortunately I have got a little stuck in the thermophysicalProperties file and what exactly to specify in 0/.
For some reason I only have a rhoSimplecFoam tutorial and no rhoSimpleFoam tutorial. I have looked for wikis etc on the algorithms but have found very little. Instead I am working from the squareBend tutorial
Firstly under specie I was not planning on changing anything from the squareBend as I assumed this would be for an ideal gas.
Secondly, I have NO idea what Hf, As and Ts are and I am assuming Cp is pressure coefficient, but I don't understand how you can specify this in the constant directory?
Any help/pointers/tips would be very much appreciated. Thank you very much

Cp --> Heat Capacity
As and Ts are model coefficients --> have a look at the sutherland model
