Reference Temperature
In STARCD, what is the reference temperature used for? Does it have any relation to the fluid properties that I specify for the fluid?

Looks like it is used for enthalpy calculations (according to methodology):


I.e., as far as I understand, enthalpy in equations is always relative, like pressure which is p=p(absolute)-p(ref)).
