With the example that we had in section, we need to find enthalpy, h, at T = 450C and P = 30MPa: From the temperature tables for superheated water, we have: T h @ 28MPa h @ 32MPa 440C 2812.6kJ/kg 2688kJ/kg 480C 3028.5kJ/kg 2949.2kJ/kg Obviously, we don't have the value for enthalpy at the specified T, and P. Assuming the relationships between h, T and P are linear, what we need to do is three separate interpolations. (Don’t get tricked by the name, “double-interpolation”.) First, we need to deal with the first row, T = 440C. Find the h @ 30MPa: (2812.6 2688.0) (28.0 32.0) (28.0 30.0)

That’s all we need!...
