Experimental Thermodynamics prepared by the Commission in 1970 has been an archival book for nearly 30 years on Thermodynamic Measurement Techniques. It is now out of date; many new techniques have been developed. At the same time many industrial organisations have reduced their expertise in the field. Industrialists and Academic Research Workers have argued that the volume needs to be updated to provide a reference for the world expertise before it is lost and has to be reinvented. It is proposed to update the volume by including only what is new and relevant. It will comprise two volumes on single and multiple phase separately.

  • – Volume VI. Measurementof the Thermodynamic Properties of Single Phases
    Editors: A.R.H. Goodwin, K.N. Marsh and W.A. Wakeham
  • published – Elsevier, 2003 [ISBN 0-444-50931-3]
  • – Volume VII. Measurementof the Thermodynamic Properties of Multiple Phases

    The 16 chapters that make up the edition are in the hands of the productiondepartment of Elsevier Publishers. Some 24 authors from nine differentcountries contributed material. This book contains descriptions ofrecent developments in the techniques for measurement of thermodynamicquantities for multiple phases of pure fluids as well mixtures overa wide range of conditions. The precision and accuracy of resultsobtained from each method was regarded as an essential element ineach description. Throughout the text, the quantities, units and symbolsare those defined by IUPAC for use in the international community.
