Package with models for perfect gases


This package contains models of thermally perfect gases.

A medium is called thermally perfect if

In addition, the gases in this package are calorically perfect, i.e., the specific heat capacities at constant pressure cp and constant volume cv are both constant (Bower 1998).

For dry and moist air media that also have a constant density, see Buildings.Media.GasesConstantDensity.
