Cryodata Authors and Partners...

Cryodata partners

Robert D. McCarty is retired from the Fluids Properties Group at NIST. At NIST he was the principal developer of the computer program "MIPROPS" which calculated properties of 12 different fluids. MIPROPS was widely distributed within the cryogenic engineering community during the 1980's; it has now been updated and is distributed by the NIST Office of Standard Reference Data as the NIST-12 standard reference program for fluid properties. He is the author of several dozen NIST publications on fluid properties. He is one of the Cryodata partners, and is a coauthor of GASPAK and HEPAK computer codes. Bob lives in Grand Junction Colorado.

Dr. Vincent Arp was educated at Berkeley and is retired from the NIST cryogenic systems group in Boulder. He is the author of several dozen NIST publications on solid and superconducting material properties, helium heat transfer studies in support of superconducting systems, and the application of MIPROPS and other fluid properties subroutines to engineering applications. He is a Cryodata partner, and is a coauthor of GASPAK, HEPAK, STEAMPAK (since retired with recommendation that those interested in steam properties look at the latest NIST package for steam), and METALPAK, CPPAK, and EXPAK computer codes. Vincent lives in Boulder, Colorado.

V. Arp and R. McCarty ... recipients of the Mendelssohn Award!

We are proud to have the opportunity to work with Cryodata partners Vincent Arp and Robert McCarty, recipients of the Mendelssohn award at the International Cryogenic Engineering Conference in Bournmouth, England on July 17, 1998. The award was "...to honour your long lasting and outstanding contributions for developing data base codes for cryogenic fluids and processes, well in use worldwide now...". We feel that this award also respects the high technical quality software products developed by Cryodata. Professor Mendelssohn was a major contributor to the world knowledge of helium, metal, and superconductor properties in the 1940's through the 1970's.

Dr. Jeffrey Fox worked in NIST's Fluid properties group for a number of years, with a specialty of critical point thermodynamics. He has developed strong capabilities in advanced computer languages and mixed-language programming. He is a former  Cryodata partner, and has specialized in program interface development. He is a coauthor of GASPAKand HEPAK. Jeff lives in Manitou Springs, Colorado.

Additional Program Authors and Consultants

Dr. Jay Theilacker is head of the Cryogenics group at Fermi National Laboratory. He has been working closely with Cryodata staff members on linking Cryodata's HEPAK and GASPAK codes into the Excel spreadsheet environment for use in cryogenic design calculations. Dr. Theilacker's e-mail is Theilacker@fnal.gov

J.G. Hust is retired from NIST's cryogenic materials group where he studied properties of metals. He contributed to Cryodata's CPPAK and EXPAK computer codes, and has consulted on other solid properties programs.
