88 Materials in the Properties Database.

Thermal Analysis Software.


CryoComp Ver. 5.2, the cryogenic materials thermal properties database and thermal analysis program for Windows, is available for licensing from Eckels Engineering Inc. CC5.2 is an augmented version compatible with Windows 10, 8.1, Vista, Windows 7, and XP; their 32, and 64 bit operating systems; as well as Excel 2003, 2007, 2010, 365, and 2016.


Version 5.2 incorporates 17 new properties while keeping cryogenic analysis procedures enjoyed by EEIís present customers who number in the hundreds. CC5.2 has Windows type pull-down tab selections, a user created property database file capability, a thermal property data file that launches directly into Excel and directly into other applications, and i2t computations. The 17 new materials added to the database are:  Fe, Hastelloy X, 2024-T0, -T4, -T861 Al, 321 SS, Nitronic 40, Incoloy 908, Inconel X-750, Mn, Mo, W, Cr, Sn, Kevlar 49 and AlN, for a total of 88 listed materials.


Scientists/Engineers can rapidly/efficiently complete cryogenic designs facilitated by dimensional data entry pull-down windows and outputs of temperature dependent thermal diffusivity, heat leak, thermal contraction, cool-down enthalpy change, thermal conductivity integral, and the i2t parameter. Instructions for using CryoComp are listed in the application guide below. Some frequently performed design computations appear below:

            1.   Thermal contraction reference temperature easily changed.

††††††††††† 2.†† Heat leak and contraction of uncooled thermal isolation support struts.

††††††††††† 3.†† Burnout time/current of uncooled electrical conductors.

††††††††††† 4.†† Cooldown enthalpy of thermal isolation support struts and cold masses.

††††††††††† 5.†† Cooldown time estimates of simple structural components.

††††††††††† 6.†† Resistance of uncooled electrical leads.

††††††††††† 7.†† Thermal conductivity integral of components.

††††††††††† 8.†† Compound conductor, thermal mass stabilized. 


The list of CC5.2ís material thermal property data and temperature range is available on this site. The temperature ranges are generally 1 to 300K although some recent additions contain data from 0.6K. Copies of the User Manual, Installation Manual, and user application guide are also available within this site as are some notes about the authors.


All CryoComp new Version purchases allow up to 10 single site users per license; upgrades continue the original ten user, single site license. The prices for CC5.2 follow:

            ††††††††††† 650 USD for customers upgrading from CC3.x*

                         995 USD for new customers.

                         300 USD for customers upgrading from  CC4.x and 5.0*

                         200 USD for customers upgrading from  CC5.1.*

*There is no increase in the licensed user limit of the original purchase (10 users total, all versions, single site) with upgrades.

Various delivery methods are available upon request.  First Class mail shipping is paid within the continental US. International mailing, if used, costs are paid by the customer. Interested parties should contact Mr. Eckels at the email address below.
