The link to the Steam Tables Calculator can be found on the left side of the page under Thermodynamics.
This Steam Tables calculator is used to compute the thermodynamic properties of steam and water. Developed using steam properties from the 1967 ASME Steam Tables, it produces results consistent with the ASME 6th Edition Steam Tables. It is a collection of HTML pages with embedded Java Applets that helps users solve thermodynamic problems and perform parametric studies visually without any programming.

I used the web site to perform several problems in preparation for an exam. I spent around an hour working 20 or so problems that I already had the answers to. The tables were very accurate and much faster then using my tables.
The applet removes the redundancy associated with working thermodynamics problems. By using the software, the student can focus on solving the problem and applying what was learned in class instead of wasting time flipping through tables looking up values. The applet greatly reduced the amount of time needed to solve many of the problems.
This applet is another great tool in the arsenal of an engineer. It should not be used solely by the students. They should first learn how to navigate and use the steam tables. This tool is great for upper level students that are trying to save time working problems as well as beginning students that already understand the use of steam tables. Because most teachers dont allow students to use computers on their tests then the student may get in trouble using this applet as a crutch to much out side of class.
The older applet was very confusing to use for me. It however did have more features that were helpful. It gave you the properties for the gas as well as the properties of the liquid. The charts found on the instructions page were not able to be found in the applet. The newer applet is not as helpful for me anyway, because most of the information I needed to look up was the entropy of gas or liquid contained in a mixture. All in all, though, it was a valuable tool.
