Programs for thermodynamics calculations

  1. Apr 15, 2017 #1
    I know these calculations in thermodynamics can be done by hand or a simple calculator but I wonder if some programs do these calculations. These programs might be called multiphysics programs. An example of a calculation - select piston-cylinder arrangement.
    -enter initial volume and pressure; P1 V1
    - enter final volume and polytropic exponent
    - calculate work done
    This calculation can be performed in numerical analysis programs or CAS but can multiphysics programs have an advantage?

    Thank you.

    This is the first time for British Gas, ProPhyPlus and Gibbs Free for me.

    Thank you.

    What do you mean by I know the programmer? Do you mean program itself?

    Meanwhile can some multiphysics programs do such things? Is "British Gas" a multiphysics program. When I googled it I saw a company not a program.

    Thank you.
