F.A.Q. Frequently Asked Questions.

Got Questions? We’ve Got Answers!

These FAQs are designed to provide a better understanding of Thermolib, our licenses, and to explain the use of our Toolbox.

Do I need Matlab / Simulink to use Thermolib?

Yes. At the time being, it is essential to have a running license of MATLAB/Simulink to use the Thermolib toolbox. If you have no Simulink license available, you can only use Thermolib command line functions like some basic thermodynamic state calculations and species diagram functions, however you cannot use the modeled components like pumps,compressors, heat exchangers, valves etc.

Which compounds / species are available as part of the Thermolib chemical media database?
Thermolib is currently with data for the following species. You can adjust the Thermolib chemical media database by adding either new properties or new species, or both.

  • H2O
  • H2O-IF97
  • CO
  • CO2
  • H2
  • N2
  • O2
  • isooctane
  • Methanol
  • 1-Buten
  • 1,3-Butadien
  • R134a, no chem.
  • NH3
  • NO
  • Ethanol
  • n-Propane
  • n-Butane
  • i-Pentane
  • R12
  • R407C, no chem
  • R125, no chem
  • R32, no chem
  • R1234yf, no chem.
I would like to modify a Thermolib component or create a new one. Can I do that?
Yes. All the Simulink code in Thermolib is visible for users and can be modified as they see fit. Only the code for the basic building blocks (Thermodynamic States and Properties) is not visible and cannot be modified. The Simulink code constitutes a large part of the Thermolib library and is generally a good starting point to modify and create new blocks.
My computer is not connected to the internet or my license activation did not work. How can I activate my thermolib license then?
Despite the activation using the “SoftwareActivation” program provided with the Thermolib installer a alternative license activation can be done using the EUtech licensing depot (file based or online), which can be found here: http://licensing.eutech.de/index.php .
