A review has been made of progress in the past two decades on measurement and correlation of the properties of steam. Data bases available in 1966 and 1986 for formulation and evaluation of equations of state are described and contrasted. Progress in the formulation of wide-ranging fundamental equations is outlined with particular reference to refinement in understanding of the critical region. Consistency of data sets is discussed and attention is drawn to areas where further work is needed. The results of continuing work on correlation of viscosity and thermal conductivity are cited.
