Senior Project - HeMen


A User Friendly Interface to Helium Properties Code

Senior Project: 1988-1989
John Black, Gregory Hopkins and Kevin Nauer
Center for Chemical Engineering
Boulder, CO

The System Dynamics Group of the Center for Chemical Engineering at the National Bureau of Standards has developed a helium properties code for general distribution by the NBS Office of Scientific Research Data. This code, written in FORTRAN, provides a programmatic interface to a set of subroutines for computing functions based on various properties of helium under varying environmental conditions. The code is written to produce thermodynamically correct results on any computer, from PC to large mainframe. The student project, written in a C/MS-DOS environment, produced an interactive, spreadsheet-like interface to this helium properties code for use on a PC. The software allows chemical engineers to conveniently access the functionality of the helium properties code without any knowledge of traditional programming.
