WinSteam Functions in MathCad

WinSteam Functions in MathCad

Hi,

I am a new user of MathCad.

I want to use WinSteam (a steam properties programme, developed by Techware) functions from within MathCad. During installation, WinSteam creates a DLL file and I can see that MathCad understands the functions attributes and parameters correctly when I type in correct syntax. My question is how do I get those functions listed in Functions (either as User defined or some other category) so that I can scroll and select them from a list.

Typically Winsteam functions look like, for example, StmPQM(p,q,unit system) for dynamic viscosity at a given pressure (p) and drynes fraction (q). Remembering exact syntax, letter cases for all functions will be a struggle. Would be much easier if they appeared on screen (like they do in Excel and supposed to be same in MathCad).

cheers,

Sanjay

Re: WinSteam Functions in MathCad

Sorry, but the best Water/Steam property functions set for Mathcad (and others) is WaterSteamPro

See please www.wsp.ru

You can use the "cloud" Water/Steam property functions set too - see http://twt.mpei.ac.ru/ochkov/WSPHB/Web-function-Power-Eng.pdf

Re: WinSteam Functions in MathCad

May be.

But unfortunately, we dont have WaterSteamPro and can not buy it when we already bought a similar tool.

As I said, I can use WinSteam functions in MathCad - but they are not showing up in the list of functions. There must be some ways to activate that.

Thanks anyway Valery.

cheers,

Re: WinSteam Functions in MathCad

Do You know why WaterSteamPro is the best program!?

Because that users WaterSteamPro addressed not to this forum with your questions - they addressed direct to me - to one of developers of this program

And because that WaterSteamPro is recommended from IAPWS - see please http://iapws.org/newform.htm

And because that WaterSteamPro uses units (MPa, Btu, kJ/(kg K) etc ) in Mathcad

...and because that... I know Mathcad very well

Hello Sanjay,

Did you you find a way to make the winsteam functions appear in mathcad?

I'm having the same problem with Mathcad 15.

Re: WinSteam Functions in MathCad

To make the functions appear in the insert functions list you will have to edit the file "user_EN.xml" (located in ....\Mathcad 15\doc\funcdoc) appropriatly. Further details are found if you click "Help/Developer's Reference/Writing Mathcad DLLs/Creating help for your functions".

In fact you don't have to use the "user_EN_xml" but you may chose to create a new xml-file with a different name. Thats OK as long as its placed in the correct directory and named with an "_EN" (or "_DE" or whatever language code) at the and.

So either the makers of your addon pack provide that XML-information or you will have to do it on your own.

Re: WinSteam Functions in MathCad

Guys, in the installation folder is a file with the descriptions of functions: McadFunc.txt

Re: WinSteam Functions in MathCad

As an alternative, you can use SMath Studio. This possibility is built there.
