Steam Flex® is a program based on Keenan & Keyes steam tables. Various steam properties can be calculated by the user.
Flexware® Startup Manual

Program features:

State Points:  Steam state points can be calculated given a pressure and any of the following: temperature, entropy, enthalpy, and moisture.
Steam Rates:  Theoretical steam rates can be calculated given inlet and exhaust pressures, plus inlet temperature, inlet enthalpy, inlet entropy, or inlet moisture.
Estimations:  "Straight through" steam turbines can be estimated given power or inlet steam flow, speed, efficiency, inlet and exhaust pressures, plus inlet temperature, inlet enthalpy, inlet entropy, or inlet moisture. A feature allows the estimation of blade heights when disk base diameters are given.
Extractions:  Extraction or induction steam turbines can be estimated similar to the straight through type.
Field Test:  Turbine efficiency can be evaluated based on Field operating data.
Detailed print outs are available with each program function.
Full control of the input and output units is available. All normally used English system and metric system units are user selectable.
