Thermophysical Models - ePsiThermo question
 
Hi all.

I am trying to specify new thermophysicalProperties for a mixtture. From the documentation one reads that:
eConstThermo assumes a constant http://www.openfoam.com/docs/user/img/user576x.png and a heat of fusion http://www.openfoam.com/docs/user/img/user577x.png which is simply specified by a two values http://www.openfoam.com/docs/user/img/user578x.png following the <specieCoeffs>. So I assume that Cv should be given for 1 bar and 25 C. Is this correct? It might sound trivial to ask, but I want to make sure. In what units should it be put? J/(mol*K) or J/(kg*K)?

Cheers.
