The short-term goal of this research which is conducted in the Computational Thermodynamics Laboratory of the Department is to enhance the existing thermodynamic portal that is accessed by more than 200 universities around the world for computations ranging from chemical equilibrium analysis through evaluation of properties of super critical fluids. This area of research brings together graduate students from Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. One Ph.D. dissertation and 15 Masters theses have resulted from this work to date. The work is supported by funding from NSF and Pearson Publishing.

The long-term goal of the research in this area is to develop efficient algorithms for thermodynamic property calculations and to create an easily accessible toolbox for the research and educational community.
