Hello everybody,

I would like to know, how the critical temperature and pressure of the liquids are calculated in the dieselFoam solver.
I know that there is a class called "liquid" and that this class offers the function Tc() which is supposed to return the critical temperature. However, where does this class get the value from? The NSRDS functions, which are normally used to calculate the liquid properties, don't calculate the critical values for each liquid.
So does anybody of you know, where the critical values for each liquid ard calculated?

I would be very glad to hear from you.
Best regards,
Sebastian Vogl
