3. DESCRIPTION OF PROBLEM OR FUNCTION

STEAM-67 is a set of routines
for calculating the properties of steam and water according to the
ASME Steam  Tables, 1967, which  have been modified  in accordance
with the  ASME paper  (reference 3).   Modifications were  made to
improve program running  time as well as to  correct some existing
program errors.   Corrections were also  made to routines  for the
liquid region to improve accuracy on the IBM360 computer.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

For  the usual  case,  where pressure  and/or
temperature are known, the viscosity, specific volume, enthalpy or
entropy may be  calculated in either the liquid  or vapor regions.
In the  vapor region, quality may  be calculated as a  function of
pressure and entropy or enthalpy.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

The ANCON output is printed but not plotted because plotting codes are frequently system-dependent. However, the output is saved on logical unit TAPE1, which may be either a tape unit or a disk file. From TAPE1, the user cam make plots with his own plotting routines. The original IBM360 conversion was by P. Henline of the National Energy Software Center.

11. MACHINE REQUIREMENTS

ANCON requires 32k words of central memory, one peripheral storage device (logical unit 1), card reader (logical unit 10), printer (logical unit 9), and card punch. Standard system- library functions and a CLOCK routine is provied with the IBM360 version package.
