# RefProp in Mathematica

RefProp by NIST is a program that calculates the thermodynamic properties of fluids. I need to call certain RefProp functions from inside Mathematica.

Can any one here, who has experience calling RefProp functions from Mathematica, tell me how to do this??

Given the source files and a Mathematica link file, you need to build a Mathematica-compatible CoolProp.dll yourself. Get them from GitHub
Doesn't RefProp package come already with .dll file? I am working with another dll thermodynamic properties tables and I guess that if You know the structure of functions in Your dll file You can implement them in Mathematica simply using DefineDLLFunction. –  Wojciech Jan 23 '14 at 11:03
You also need to first load .NET/Link using Needs["NETLink"]` to use dll files in Mathematica. –  Wojciech Jan 23 '14 at 11:16
