Bibliographic information United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, Wigshaw Lane, Culcheth, Warrington WA4 3NE, United Kingdom, 1990. 19p. 15 ref. Price: GBP 4.00.
Abstract This report describes the contents and use of the DATABANK, a computer programme for evaluating temperature dependent physical properties of hazardous vapours at atmospheric pressure. The DATABANK consists of a data file, an index of substances (currently 25), an index of properties, and software to extract the properties at a given temperature, both interactively and to link with hazard analysis codes. Some properties consist of a single number, others are stored as coefficients for polynomials in temperature. The temperature range is stored, and full references to the source of the data are given.
