Steam Tables

Steam tables contain specific volume, enthalpy, internal energy, and entropy of water (both liquid and vapor) over a range of temperatures and pressures, including at saturation and supercritical conditions. These steam tables are available in three formats: an Excel spreadsheet (.xlsx) containing three tables, or individual tables in comma-separated value (.csv) format or JavaScript object notation (.json) format. The data in these steam tables is provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and is based on formulations by the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS). The Excel file contains a function to look up water properties at any pressure between 0.01 and 1000 MPa and any temperature between 0.01°C and 2000°C. The Excel steam tables are updated regularly to improve usability and eliminate bugs, so download the most recent version.
This interactive self-study module uses screencasts and a simulation to explain how to use steam tables:
