Software for steam and water properties is quite common now. Such software do come in standalone mode and does not require other engines for running. But the Excel add-in for steam and water thermodynamic properties not only provides all the functionalities but also come as a very handy tool for heat/power engineers since the in-built power of Excel adds to the benefits in many ways.


In the Excel environment, user can process the output obtained for further calculation, optimization, graph plotting, use of solver functions, heat balancing etc. In fact the flexibility and possibilities of using the steam properties add-in functions for further engineering and scientific calculations within Excel are almost unlimited and truly depends upon the skill and imagination of the user.


It is not difficult to procure such steam and water properties Excel add-in software through internet. However, all of them do not provide same range of functionalities. Most important aspect of such add-in software is to see that how many functions are available.
