Abstract : A table of thermodynamic data of 331 selected materials has been compiled for the purpose of providing engineers with information on materials which are not easily identifiable by a stoichiometric formula. Examples of such materials are: foods, wood species, oils, animals, plants, polymers, etc. The table is arranged alphabetically according to the names of the various materials, and whenever possible, the chief components or all readily identifiable components are supplied. In addition, the physical state, the kind of thermodynamic property, specific-property values, and citations to a list of 142 references are furnished. In order to assist the reader with finding a specific material or property, a material name and property index has been put together. A section on Units and Definitions explains the various thermodynamic properties being reported and the condition under which they apply. An appendix supplies auxiliary information on symbols for thermodynamic quantities, units, physical constants and atomic weights. The table is oriented more toward engineers involved in the disposal of municipal wastes than any other group; however, applications in other engineering and scientific sectors can easily be made.
