Steam utilities (Excel)

WG Member Posts: 3
Hello all,

I've begun working on developing a set of steam system calculation utilities (attached). This workbook has a lot of data from various sources and the idea is to collect it all in one Excel workbook so that it can be harnessed to produce various useful outputs. Any and all ideas for how it can be used, improved, or corrected would be welcome.

for starters i wonder if anyone has an opinion on the accuracy of the radiator volume factors published in Burnham's "Heating Helper."

    I also think the Burnham radiator ratings are often on the low end.
