Standard Specification for
Ethane Thermophysical Property Tables1
This standard is issued under the fixed designation D 3984; the number immediately following the designation indicates the year of
original adoption or, in the case of revision, the year of the last revision. A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. A
superscript epsilon (e) indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval.
1.1 The ethane thermophysical property tables are for use in
the calculation of the pressure-volume-temperature (PVT),
thermodynamic, and transport properties of ethane for process
design and operations. Tables are provided for gaseous and
liquid ethane at temperatures between 90 and 600K at pressures to 70 MPa. These tables were developed by the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (formerly the National
Bureau of Standards) upon culmination of four years of effort
in acquiring available physical properties data, in performing
experimental measurements, and in formulating these tables
for use in thermal computations.
2.1 The preparation of the tables and supporting work was
done by the National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST) under the sponsorship of the Gas Research Institute, the
American Gas Association, and the Standard Reference Data
Program of NIST.
3.1 These tables apply directly only to pure gaseous and
liquid ethane. However, it is expected that they will find
substantial use in mathematical models and tables for the
thermophysical properties of mixtures containing ethane, such
as natural gas.
