Book description: This book is a collection of 104 papers from the 12th International Conference on the Properties of Water and Steam which was held in Orlando, FL, September 11−16, 1994. This continuing Conference arose from the requirement for understanding and formulating the physical and chemical properties of substances related to the operation of steam power cycles. This need led (at the 7th Conference) to the establishment of the International Association for the Properties of Steam which is now known as the International Association for the Properties of Water and Steam (IAPWS), under whose auspices this Conference is held approximately every 5 years. The interesting history of these conferences is given both in the Introduction and in the plenary lecture by Dr. J. M. H. Levelt Sengers.
Continuing a trend of covering an increasingly wide range of topics associated with water, steam, and high-temperature aqueous systems, the papers in this book cover: metastable states and nucleation, supercooled, superheated and stretched water, molecular modeling of aqueous systems, frontiers of physical chemistry of aqueous solutions, high-temperature aqueous systems including measurement techniques, hydrothermal oxidation, chemical processes in steam cycles, and plant cycle chemistry.
