Emeritus Faculty

Dr. Rowley received his BS degree in Chemistry from BYU in 1974 and his PhD from Michigan State University in 1978. He taught at Rice University in Houston from 1978 to 1984 and has taught at BYU since 1984. He served as chair of the BYU Chemical Engineering Department twice, from 1990 to 1995 and then again from 2007 to 2010. A main focus of TPL is the DIPPR-801 pure-chemical thermophysical property database. This database is recognized as the gold standard of pure chemical properties and is one of the primary data engines used by the chemical process industry throughout the world. The project uses chemical, molecular structure and thermodynamic knowlege to evaluate measured and predicted data and recommend the best possible values for a complete set of 44 properties for each chemical. This work is funded by the Design Institute for Thermophysical Properties, an institute within AIChE.
