The development of this library has been a collaborative effort
and many have contributed:
- The essential parts of the media models have been implemented
in the ThermoFluid library by Hubertus Tummescheit with
help from Jonas Eborn and Falko Jens Wagner. These media models
have been converted to the Modelica.Media interface definition
and have been improved by Hubertus Tummescheit.
- The effort for the development of the Modelica.Media library has been
organized by Martin Otter who also contributed to the design,
implemented part of the generic models, contributed to the User's Guide
and provided the generic test suite Modelica.Media.Examples.Tests.
- The basic idea for the medium model interface based on packages
is from Michael Tiller who also contributed to the design.
- The first design of the medium model interface is from
Hilding Elmqvist. The design and the implementation has been further
improved at the Modelica design meetings in

- Hans Olsson, Sven Erik Mattsson and Hilding Elmqvist developed
symbolic transformation algorithms and implemented them in Dymola
to improve the efficiency considerably (e.g., to avoid non-linear
systems of equations).
- Katrin Pröß implemented the moist air model
- Rüdiger Franke performed the first realistic tests of the Modelica.Media
and Modelica_Fluid libraries and gave valuable feedback.
- Francesco Casella has been the most relentless bug-hunter and tester of the
water and ideal gas properties. He also contributed to the User's Guide.
- John Batteh, Daniel Bouskela, Jonas Eborn, Andreas Idebrant, Charles Newman,
Gerhart Schmitz, and the users of the ThermoFluid library provided
many useful comments and feedback.
