What is evitherm?

Evitherm is a web-based thermal resource centre, resulting from a 3-year project in the EU's GROWTH programme. It aims to facilitate the rapid flow of thermal knowledge to users of thermal technologies in industry for the benefit of industrial processes and the environment.


  • provides authoritative thermal property data
  • gives access to thermal experts
  • disseminates innovative solutions for industrial problems
  • promotes the adoption of good thermal measurement practice
  • helps transfer measurement techniques from laboratory to industry
  • facilitates collaboration and exploitation of thermal research

Thermal property data

Specially low rates have been arranged for evitherm users to access some of the world's leading thermal properties databases:

evitherm - based on the THERSYST database developed at IKE, University of Stuttgart, and now available online for the first time

CINDAS - an engineering materials data source normally available only by annual subscription or on CD-ROM but now uniquely available from evitherm at an unbeatable hourly or annual rate

NELFOOD - a specialist foods database hosted by the National Engineering Laboratory, Scotland

The data in these volumes of the famous TPRC data books are now available online from CINDAS via evitherm.

Visit Finding data for more details of the above and other (free and pay-for) data sources available from evitherm.

Consultancy brokering

Not all enquiries can be answered by an email or in a public forum setting. Sometimes a personal consultancy is needed.

Evitherm has developed a brokering scheme that brings together an enquirer with an expert who speaks their language, is in their geographic region and understands their needs.
For further details see the Help centre.
