The Heat of Dilution, dHdiln, of a species is the change in enthalpy when a solution of concentration M1 is diluted to a final concentration of M2. The most pronounced effects of heat of dilution can be observed with mixtures of acids and water, such as Sulfuric Acid and Nitric Acid.

If the user enters heat of dilution data for a species into the Species Database then SysCAD will automatically calculate the heat of dilution when diluting and concentrating streams and in reactions.
