This web is organized under three main sections: Search, Uncertainty and New predictions.


This section allows you to look for the thermophysical properties of the most important molten salt mixtures for energy applications. User can make a search by harnessing four simple filters:


This section is devoted to discuss and explain the possible discrepancies found in the different reviewed studies (mostly in the case of experimental measurements) about molten salts properties determination.


With this section we pretend to:


1- Simple search

To look for a reference (or a group of references), one should enter to the Search section, and start to apply the needed filters. The header of this section will help us to simplify the process.

As an example, a user wants to know all the references stored for FLiBe density, published between the years 1980 and 2006, and containing values for temperatures above 900 K. We can perform this search with only one step (including all the filters), or by contrary we can make sequential filters applying one to the previous search result. If we do successive steps, we can follow for instance the next sequence:

The More info tab includes:

Once a reference has been selected, the user can go back to the search menu by using the common browser Back button.

A special mention should be made in the case that certain reference does not include a validity temperature range for a particular correlation. In this situation, the user must note that none of these kinds of references will be displayed in the results table if the Temperature filter is used. Hence, they will be only shown if the Temperature filter is not applied.

2- Uncertainty

The Uncertainty menu offers a simple way to display all the detected issues filtered by salt type. After selecting a salt and clicking Submit, the web will show a list of results with all the stored comments for this salt and a brief identifying description.

Over the results list, the user can click any of the descriptions. The browser will refresh, displaying a complete explanation of the remark, and including a comparative illustration (when available) to ease the comprehension of the comment.

As mentioned above, the same result can be achieved from the hyperlink that is included in the More info tab (at Search menu results). In this case, by clicking the link the browser will open directly the Uncertainty section related to the selected reference, and no others.

Continuing with the last example (FLiBe; Viscosity; D.F. Williams, L.M. Toth, K.T.; 2006), user can now click in the link beside Uncertainty to open the appropriate remark related with this reference
