I have a question about implementation of a new chemical in OpenFOAM 1.7. I am trying to implement 2-propanol / isopropyl.

I found this guide from Chen Huang, Alexey Vdovin and Håkan Nilsson:

But I don’t understand, which values I have to insert in c file bracket

(see page 10, in the guide)


For inspiration I looked at the H2O.c file in the H2O directory. I look like I have to insert some sort of polynomial function, is this correct?

Is it just to insert how rho_(), pv_(), hl_(), cp_(), etc. is depending on the temperature?
