For the discrete data points you can create either 1d dimensional interpolation functions (assuming depends only on T or p).. For 2d (T and P), you can create an RGP file and define your material properties in it (several materials supplied by CFX use RGP files). If you have analytical expressions, just type them in on the RHS of the CCL parameter for the particular properties. If the equation is too complex and cannot be done via CEL, you still can write a User CEL Function (see documentation) Also, where does the steam data comes from? CFX has some steam data (wet and dry, high and low pressure) already in their database. For 11.0, I understand that more steam data is coming out (IAWPS equations). Failing all the above, I will contact CFX help directly since they do steam calculations themselves all the time.. Good luck, Opaque
