S(T) = \int  \frac{Cp(T)}{T} \, dT + C2

but what is the value of C1 and C2, which is needed for JANAF as a6 and a7 ?

there are tables for JANAF values for various materials in net or in thermodynamics books like van wylen,... I remember I found them although wasn't easy enough.

Hi Punit Walia,
I'm in the same case as yours, did you get any answer ?
Thank you

This is an old thread, but the link for the old janaf tables is down. I was wondering if anyone could post a new link or the old files?

I will use the new ones for now, but they are overkill for my problem.

Dear Foamers

In OFv7 and OFv2006 and other earlier versions, in janafThermoI.H file, calculation of dGdT (Gibbs free energy derivative w.r.t. temperature) is expressed as:

 template<class EquationOfState>
 inline Foam::scalar Foam::janafThermo<EquationOfState>::dGdT
     const scalar p,
     const scalar T
 ) const
     const coeffArray& a = coeffs(T);
     return -((a[0] + a[5]/T)/T + a[1]/2 + T*(a[2]/3 + T*(a[3]/4 + T*a[4]/5)));
As far as I know, dGdT is equal to -S but as you can see in the above expression, dGdT is calculated based on the H expression coefficients (i.e it has a[5]). In fact, according to these, we can say dGdT is equal to -H(T)/RT^2.
It may be a silly question, but could anybody please explain why is this so?

Thank you
